I'm scared. Whenever I tried to use packages from two dists in the past,
I was in big trouble with unmet package dependencies. The machines are
going to be used in my compay's office and so for the first time in my
Debian life, I prefer to use 'stable' instead of 'testing'. :-)

But I'll consider this. At least, I'd the upcoming problems would be
familiar to me...

Ok, maybe it's not only the keyboard. The installer stops at the first
screen, even in noninteractive mode. Bad luck, I'm not able to switch
to console #3 to see the kernel output.

Than you for your suggestions.
