Next error:
On installation of base system it would complain that there was no /proc - I created one by hand and that error went away.

Hmm, that could be a "not yet reported AMD64 thingy" ...

Next error:
It would fail at installing base-passwd - complains about missing file or directory during a tar. I checked and all the mount points were there and all the directories used exist?? This one Is the show stopper for me - any hints??

Provide more information, like the name of the file that is missing.

I got past this - creating the /target/proc and rerunning the 'install base system' caused a second error

Could be this is from running 'install base system' twice?
 - but if I selected stable and dropped down to shell and

chroot /target
mkdir /proc

I got past the 'install base system' and to the install kernel part.

This /proc problem exists on both a S2877 and S2865 motherboard - I also saw it mentioned on debian-amd64@lists.debian.org

But still no joy - it couldn't properly install a smd kernel on raid - so it is unbootable. (these should be Sarge kernels, but I don't see Sarge in the names on the list of offered kernels??)

Today, I'm going to start over again and skip the RAID for now (I will use the page I wrote here to move back to raid later - see :
http://xtronics.com/reference/SATA-RAID-debian-for-2.6.html )

I am now working with an installation image with root directory dates of May 6th. (I now loop mount these isos to find the dates and add a date string to the end of the iso file name - how do you guys make use of reports without knowing the build version of the package??)

I also found that there may be an issue about initrd and a change in the name of kernel-image to linux-image - is there a particular kernel I should try to install for sarge?

When everything is coming my way, I'm probably in the wrong lane.
