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

This attempt to install on a T60 didn't get very far. The installer
could not detect the network card, though previous versions of the
installer (for etch/testing) appeared to have no problem with
identical models of this machine. The network card on this machine is
an Intel, and is supported by the e1000 driver.

I'm not attaching the hardware summary, since this installation never
got very far, but we can try to do it if you think it would be useful.
