Bug#301381: Debian Installation Report: failure of debian-installer RC3 on a Dell Latitude D610 (SATA related)

This is very unlikely now. Blame those f***** hardware manufacturers
who are constantly changing hardware specifications and don't even
give possibilities to circumvent the induced problems.
There is no plan to use 2.6.10 in sarge as kernel transitions induce
huge work to the D-I and kernel teams.
In short and in french : plein le dos des modes diverses et variées
dans le domaine du matériel. En particulier, SATA est la pire
innovation qui doit arrivée ces dernières années, probablement...:-(
