Comments/Problems:
First tried to install Woody. All worked well except ACPI. Becouse I
had/still have no idea how to compile kernel I decided to Install
Sarge becouse of ACPI support.
First tried with netinstall with image downloaded on 21.3.2005 from
ttp://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/daily/i386/current/
All worked well except  I couldn't connect to internet over PPPoE. If
I knew what I know now I would probably made it (read bellow).
Then downloaded
http://debian.cn99.com/debian-cd/sarge/rc2/sarge-i386-netinst.iso
(last modified 22-Nov-2004). Installed 2.6 kernel and had the same
problem with Ethernet card. The debian-installer recognizes all the
hardware and installs additional drivers for my card (rtl8139 and
8139too). Which is where the problem lies. I removed the drivers later
with modconf and then reinstalled 8139too and it worked. But I had to
repeat this after every reboot (I'm newbie!!). But main problem was
the external PS/2 mouse which didn't worked. The touchpad Synaptics
mouse worked well. When in console I moved the PS/2 mouse I got a
acreen od output like this:
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte1
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte1
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte1
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte1
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte1
when touched the touchpad i got this
psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 - driver resynched
and all came to normal. 
I found out that this is a kernel problem, so I reinstalled Sarge with
2.4 kernel in expert mode. I didn't allow debian-installer to install
additonal driver for Ethernet card i.e. 8139too and skipped all
network HW and network configuration. Got a fully functional base
install and after running pppoeconf continued instalation with
apt-get. Simple, when you once know how to do it!!
The debian-install program is nice and simple enough (even in expert
mode), a big improvement from Woody installer, but with my "exotic -
designed for Windows XP" laptop it was a little harder deal. But I
made it and now I'm a happy user of Debian. ACPI still has some
problems, but I will fix it in future.

Thanks for all the good work!!!!

Given that this install report is a complete success report (even with
the noticed glitches)), I do as usual with successful install report=A0:
I close the bug..:-)

You may want to test the just released RC3 images you can download
from http://www.nl.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/index.en.html. Of
course, given that you already installed the system, this may be
hard....but, just in case, you can still boot it and go up to the
stage it writes on the hard disk (the partitionin stage).

This does not of course mean you weren't right to report. Knowing the
installations are correct is important for the d-i team.

Many thanks for yourtime testing the Debian Installer and reporting
your results. Have fun with your new Debian system!
