During this install I had to access internet through another computer
(through NAT/ipmasq), and dns resolv did not work (quite possible due to
me). But it would be great if there where a fallback to ip-numbers for
debian ftp-servers in situations like this.

Another minor issue was that the default debconf frontend does not seem
to be installed. Please change default or make the default install by

debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Gnome
debconf: (Unable to load Gnome -- is libgnome2-perl installed?)
debconf: falling back to frontend: Dialog
Preconfiguring packages ...
Inspection showed that indeed, libgnome2-perl was not installed by default.
Please make sure that the hardware-summary log file, and any other
installation logs that you think would be useful are attached to this

Once you have filled out this report, mail it to submit@bugs.debian.org.
