Bug#385768: installation-reports: Failed to reboot x86 SCSI system

I have found the problem :-) This was my fault : bad configurations
at the SCSI controller (wrong boot ID and no auto-spinning for
the new boot device). I had neatly optimized my SCSI setting and forgot
to fully adapt it for the new Debian Installer tests on the new
disk. Sorry for the unjustified alert :-\

So the actual result of a new install after updated SCSI configuration
is now :

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

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

As for the network, I have simply installed pppoeconfig after the
system rebooted and then I had a working connection to the Internet,
just like with Sarge.

I'll do some more tests regarding the Ethernet Speedtouch modem (using
Mandriva + configuring the modem through HTTP) and I will then suggest
an information text that I hope the DI  team will find
appropriate/legitimate enough to include somewhere to help the
Ethernet Speedtouch users.

Just to be sure : there isn't anymore second stage install (if I'm not
mistaken about the "second stage install" term) now ? When the system
reboots its now supposed to be operational ? I'm asking because if I
remember well this was different with Sarge and I want to be sure that
there isn't any step missing in what happened on my machine.
