I wasn't prompted, and I did get testing.

Is it possible the installer used an earlier version of the 2.6.12
kernel than the one eventually installed?  I guess the latter is the
current one from testing.

The relevant component has been under active development, with
patches filtering into quite a few recent kernels.

Otherwise, I still don't understand why the beta 1 installer had trouble
with the disk.  I'm certainly glad it's fixed, though!
