Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [E] OK after changing ramdisk_size
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [O]
Partition hard drives:  [0]
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


When booting without changing any boot-parameters, the system would hang with 
as last message 'Kernel panic: no init found'. Previous messages already had 
scrolled off the screen (because the scrolling takes place on the first 
However, I already had some experience with booting from CD (see bug report 
301504), so I changed the parameter ramdisk_size to different values. I tried 
this numbers:
4096 --> same problem
8192 --> same problem
16384 --> OK, installer started fine
32768 --> OK, installer started fine

I only tried these values, if you want me to search further (some values in 
between), please let me know.

After that initial problem was solved, the installation went fine.

Just one remark: after every 'apt-get update' I get the following message:
connecting to <mirror I chose> module ipv6 relocation of symbol capable is out 
of range (0x3ffeffdc in 17 bits).
