Installation itself went fine. Problems:
1. GNOME has not Finnish keymap selected, even though Finnish was
   selected as the installation language. This should be corrected!
   Manually fixed by changing /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb/
   layouts from us to fi. XF86Config-4 had the correct XkbLayout
2. I've both a tv card and Audigy2 sound card, which both have mixers.
   The tv card is not a real audio device, yet it is configured as the
   primary "sound card" and I can't get any audio out of my machine. I
   had the same problem with Ubuntu Warty, and though I had some success
   with esound.conf -d parameter, the only way I found to fix the
   problem permanently was to remove the snd-bt87x module entirely,
   which is apparently btaudio in 2.4 kernels. This behavior is fixed
   in eg. Ubuntu Hoary.

3. libtheora0 should be installed by default when desktop package is
   selected. Ogg Theora is The free video codec at the moment, and even
   though it's in "alpha" stage its bitstream is fixed and it's fully
   usable. It'd be nice to play Theora videos out-of-the-box with Sarge.
   Now plays with Totem as soon as libtheora0 is installed.

Thanks, I'll be happy to help in any of these three subjects! And
it'd be _really_ great to have Theora in sarge by default :)
