Bug#294875: installation-reports

Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: /pub/cd-images/debian-weekly/i386 of Feb. 7th 05

uname -a: -
Date: 11.02.05
Method: Non-expert install, booted from sarge-i386-1.iso <http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/cd-images/debian-weekly/i386/sarge-i386-1.iso>

Machine: IBM Thinkpad T23
Processor: Intel Pentium III
Root Device: /dev/cdrom, /dev/hdc
Root Size/partition table: <Feel free to paste the full partition
     table, with notes on which partitions are mounted where.>
Output of lspci and lspci -n:

Base System Installation Checklist: E

Installer automatically installs a K7-Kernel which does not boot on the T23 (uncompressing Linux message ok, but that's the last message). For a novice, the debian installation just fails. Why can't the user choose among different kernels to be installed? In this case, only a expert installation suceeded, but all the selections had to be redone.
