Tested up to partitioning stage.

Yes, if I manually run insmod on libata.ko and ahci.ko. Otherwise
the disk is not found.
My lspci data has been reported through regular channels
and there is also a copy at http://www.jab.org/install-report

My network interface is identified as Yukon something - don't
know if that is what you are asking for.

My only comment is this .iso should be linked from the main AMD64
webpage - http://www.debian.org/ports/amd64

Or maybe this one should be linked instead. The only "standard" installer
iso for Debian AMD64 I've found so far has a 2.6.8 kernel.
