Comments/Problems:
The installer did not detect any hard drives.  I suspect this has
something to do with the motherboard, which I think is relatively new:
Intel D945PSNLK.  One 250GB WD SATA hard drive.  The block diagram
shows that the Intel  945P chipset controls the drive via the Intel
82801G hub.

Still, I thought this was pretty generic; I'm a bit surprised there
was a problem.  The vendor did say the hardware should work with
Linux.

The system also has a floppy and and DVD/CD drive; I booted off the
latter.

fdisk /dev/hda when I shelled out reported it couldn't find the device.

It's a new machine.

I was a little surprised to see a reference to devfs in some of the
material that flew by.  Other messages suggested a 2.6 kernel; I
thought it used udev, not devfs.

I gave this a shot because my initial Win98 installation got hung up.
The Win98 installer did detect and partition the hard drive, though
the reported size (40G) was much smaller than the actual size (250G).
I manually create one 6G partition at the start.  The Win98 install
hung up before I got to format the partition.

Aha, confusinng matter..:-)

Frans question is: when you were prompted for a mirror, you may have
been prompted to install "Stable", "Testing" or "Unstable", just after
choosing the mirror.

If you did choose "Testing", then you're likely to run into problems.

If you were'nt prompted, this is because the question is medium
priority and you were running the installer at high priority (the default).

So, it seems that installing testing works..:-). However, it probably
works with netinst images...not sure about netboot images (the small
ISO images one can easily build with D-I sources).


I think we can safely close the bug report now.
