Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot:           [O]

Detect CD:              [O]

Install tasks:          [ ]
Install boot loader:    [ ]
Overall install:        [ ]


the installation is started with the following SRM command:

boot dka200 -flags 0

the d-i enters into "low memory mode".

when it reaches the "detecting network hardware" point, it enters into
an endless loop of killed processes showing the following error flag:

(process:number) INFO: kbd-mode: setting console mode to Unicode (UTF-8)

when i boot the netinst CD using the priority=low flag, the d-i accomplishes
successfully the following tasks:

"Choose language"
"Select a keyboard layout"
"Detect and mount CD-ROM" ("Detecting hardware to find CD-ROMS", "Scanning CD-ROM")
"Load installer components from CD" ("Loading additional components")

no big problem so far, however when i push it through "Detect network hardware",
the logging console (Alt-F4) shows the kernel killing several processes associated
with the message "Out of Memory" and the installing console (Alt-F1) prints out the

(process:number) INFO: kbd-mode: setting console mode to Unicode (UTF-8)

Thanks for all!
