First attempt at 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:         [O]
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:    [E]
Install boot loader:    [ ]
Reboot:                 [ ]

Comments/Problems: installer got stuck for a long time (10 mins) while configuring "portmap",
and later froze 73% into base system when starting configuring "gconf2-common"

Might this be due to a network timeout on the mirror download site (mirrors.ircam.fr)?
Seems unlikely since this server had very good ping response time just before starting the net install.
The computer was left in frozen condition for 24 hours before the second, successful, identical attempt.

Second attempt, restarting from scratch, went through the end all right, except for a quite long
"configuring" sleep (a few minutes) about 94% into the install.
