Comments/Problems:

Had consistent problems trying to install with 2.6 (install26).
I'll file that separately.

I booted with 'install24' and no other options.

There were some problems with network setup (see below) but I was able
to use the archive on the cdrom to get a bootable system.

In the "Select and Install Software" step, I set just picked
  [*] laptop
  [ ] standard system
but this turned out to be extremly minimal - no pciutils, lynx, rsync or 'file'.


I hit another problem when I tried to install the 2.6 kernel from the cdrom,
see below.

Thanks for the many improvements.



[bug]
unresolved symbol ALIGN in orinoco module of 2.4.27 installer kernel.

 ethdetect was unable to load the orinoco_cs module, to get networking working.
 I tried modprobing from the command line and got this:
   orinoco.o: unresolved symbol ALIGN

 Going to the 'no network' option allowed me to proceed through the
 installation.


 Post-installation, I was able to upgrade to a 2.6.16 kernel (from the cdrom)
 and this did support my card. This is an old Netgear 802.11b-only card, it
 should be supported in 2.4 kernels.

[bug?]
d-i mounts cdrom at a different place than normal system?

  I'm not sure this is a bug or a feature or just me.

  When I came to install a 2.6 kernel from the cdrom, I had difficulty getting
  the cdrom mounted. I had completed the basic installation and had rebooted
  into a fully running system.
  When mounting the installer disk under d-i, during installation, the
  system uses /cdrom as the mount point.
  When I tried to mount the cdrom, it seemed like the /cdrom location had
  disappeared and I had to either mount it as /media/cdrom0 or create a
  symlink /cdrom-> /dev/sr0 (can't recall which and my notes are incomplete).
  It took a bit of fiddling with 'fdisk -l /dev/hdc' and so on to figure
  out that I was trying to access the wrong device.

  Does the installer to use a mountpoint for the cdrom that is consistent
  with later usage, during normal system operation?
  This is probably something that only affects 2.4 people with no network,
  but I thought I should flag it.
