Title: Successful Etch install

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: <How did you boot the installer? CD? floppy? network?>

Machine: <Description of machine (eg, IBM Thinkpad R32)> Dell Latitude D600 Laptop
Processor: intel (not sure of the exacts)

Comments/Problems:

It detected both wired and wireless ethernet interfaces. I tried to do the install via wireless but it would not connect.  After the first try with wireless failed, used the landline.
After the installation, tried to use the wireless, but its still not connecting.  Installation seems to have found the right wireless card (Broadcom BCM43xx) but I really haven't spent any time trouble shooting, yet.  Will work on it some tonight.


<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

Thoughts… it takes a L-O-N-G time to install all the gnome packages!
I made a post on forums.debian.net, installation about how to make the USB bootable.  The key: use knoppix or some other live CD to edit the /boot/grub menu.lst and domain.map files to flip flop hd0, sd1 to sd0, hd1  before booting with the stick.

Great job!  Thank you!

Good luck with that. Let us know if there is something that could make it 
work with the installer too.

You don't need knoppix for that: the rescue mode of the installer will 
work just as well :-)

Closing your report as the installation was successful. Thank you for 
submitting it. You can still reply to this mail and to the bug report if 
you like.

Cheers,
