Although the installation goes fine, in the end the x-server doesn't start. I've tried installing the whole system serveral times. It seems to me that there are problems in detecting some hardware like mouse and keyboard. Unfortunatly i do not know how how to send you the result from lspci with graphical interface.
The "installgui"-method seems rather useles to me as there is no advantage in using it the the old gui. It's also rather buggy. The GoBack-button doesn't send me back in the installation but simply continous it. My mouse pad dousn't work properly (as already stated on debian.org).
An installer from a running live-system like in Ubuntu 6.10 would be great.
Keep up the great work. Thank you all for free high quality software.
