Hmm.. difficult to remember as I eventually decided to use a different
image to boot the slug.
Would have been UK English.
Which priority did you use for the install? Was it the default
priority (ie booting by just hitting Enter at the installer boot
prompt), or something else like "epxert"?
This device doesn't have an installer boot prompt.
Basically the slug has no console or serial port. What happens is you
boot it with the bootstrap image and eventually it beeps and you can ssh
in. At that point it's in the debian installer in 'Low memory mode' and
you have to select a short list of installer components to load.
See http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html for the installation
instructions (as far as I know the same ones everyone uses).
One possibility is the instructions are missing something important (eg.
a missing installer component) and it's confusing the timezones somehow.
