Installed with expertgui.
The only issues I noticed were with partitioning the disks (manual
I created two logical partitions on hdb.
hdb6=ext3 / and hdb7=swap created in that order
Writing changes showed this:

The following partitions are going to be formatted:
partition #6 of IDE1 master (hda) as swap
partition #6 of IDE1 slave (hdb) as ext3
partition #7 of IDE1 slave (hdb) as swap.

Now technically this is accurate, there is a swap partition on hda6
from my sarge install. However that partition was not referenced or
modified by me in any way. I guess formatting it again won't do any
harm but on the other hand why is the installer deciding to format
other partitions?

Also the interface for partitioning (partition list) was a little
inconsistent in that it was the only screen which did not allow me to
select items with the mouse.
