This machine uses some kind of EFI instead of bios.
GRUB barfes, but lilo installs
lilo gave an error, so i rebooted with CD in EXPERT mode
i ran the partition disk option, it recognized all partitons.
while trying to mount them at the right positions i accidentally
hit the"name" tag, since i would want to use that i left it empty
and hit return.
The whole install procedure than stalls
even pressing control-C and go back to main menu you wont 
be able to start  a new partiion manager again

this is (imho) a bug.

Kind regards,
