did a quick test of the graphical installer, keyboard and mouse are detected
fine in VMware. then I did an installation with the ascii-mode installer.
regarding the german translation (when selecting german as the installation
while partitioning choice #3 reads "gefuehrt - gesamte platte mit verschl. LVM
einrichten"; the "verschl." was unclear to me at first (and supposedly would
be for a novice user), I'd suggest not abbreviating it.
later, the text uses "blockgeraeteverschluesselung" (block device encryption),
which sounds rather IBMese and is not what anybody actually says in german,
I'd suggest changing it to "festplattenverschluesselung" (hard disk
encryption), which is less exact, but much better sounding.

That's not easy. The English message is
"Guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted LVM"
the German one
"Geführt - gesamte Platte mit verschl. LVM einrichten"
Please note that there exists a limit of 55 characters for this string.
I will drop "set up" and use
"Geführt - gesamte Platte mit verschlüsseltem LVM"
There are also other strings affected by the length limitation:
msgid "Partition disks"
msgstr "Festplatten partitionieren"
This is cutted after "partitionie" and
msgid "physical volume for encryption"
msgstr "Physikalisches Volume für Verschlüsselung"
after "Verschlüsselun" :-)

I do not think that this sounds better. It may also be wrong as the block
device may be a mounted NFS directory (?) or a loop device. I doubt that
the Debian Installer supports this directly but with the help of the
console it's possible.
Thanks for your hints,
