I had to configure it myself Detect CD: [E] OK, but known problem Load installer modules: [O] Detect hard drives: [O] Partition hard drives: [ ] Create file systems: [O] Mount partitions: [O] Install base system: [O] Install boot loader: [O] Reboot: [O] [O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it Comments/Problems: The install went well, the problem I had is with network configuration : I couldn't skip the ethernet card configuration, so I had to configure it, which was not needed in my case (ADSL Ethernet modem). The settings for the default gateway the DNS server has been a problem : I put a default gateway and a DNS server, which then conflicted with my provider's DNS. I had to remove it in /etc/resolv.conf and to remove the default gateway in /etc/network/interfaces before continuing. I think that the network card configuration should be optional, and it would be great to be able to run pppoeconf automatically (I had to launch it by hand). I was also confused with pcmcia, since as I remember from my woody install, I had the choice of removing it, which wasn't the case in sarge. I had problems with tasksel : after moving the arrow (left or right), the selection was on finish and in the menu. Then, pressing return or space exits instead of selecting the package. I then relaunched tasksel and avoided the problem, but it is not convenient : it would probably not be difficult to ask the user to confirm quitting. Apart from this, I really enjoyed the new installer.
