I think I was aiming at either some indication of download speed, or
some indication of the total data to be downloaded. Either would have
told me that >half an hour of downloading was normal.

Cool. So it's not worth testing the latest image yet? I've got the
machine to play with for a few days.

Final notes:
- I selected "Database Server" in the tasksel and got postgres-7.4.
Version 8.1 will be in etch.
- I don't remember being asked about timezone/clock settings, but that
may be my bad memory.
- Also had some difficulty with the keyboard selection. In retrospect
selecting a "US" keyboard was the right thing, but it was confusing at
the time. Though I think I remember some discussion about making it
easier (asking the user to type @";:\ and using that to narrow down the
possible types).

Other than that it went pretty good. Keep up the good work.

Have a ncie day,
