Bug#511177: Bug 511177 Update
Boot method: CD
Image version: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/daily-
UPDATE: (i.e. what I forgot to report previously)
1. When attempting to install GRUB from the above Image Version
(after the Linux-image failed to install), I noticed that GRUB only
detected the Windows 98 partition but not the MS-DOS partition.
GRUB with the Etch installer correctely identified both partitions.
2. After reporting this "bug" with the above Image Version, I
realized that the installer was from 'sid'. So I downloaded the
Lenny-Testing-i386-KDE weekly image of 05-Jan-2009 to try again.
The exact same problems previously reported occurred with this
CD image, as with all other Lenny installs previously attempted.
3. After several more attempts of installing Lenny, I reinstalled Etch
r5 without any problems (other than the partitioner incorrectly
identifying the partition numbers - as previously reported). For both
Etch and Lenny installs, I've used the text-based 'expert' option.
4. Even though I have spent several days configuring Etch, I would
still prefer to install Lenny - somehow - or upgrade from Etch to
Lenny - somehow - to get the newer features. If installing Lenny
means wiping out Etch to try any installer fixes that are made, I
would be willing to do that. If no installer fixes are going to be
attempted to address the issues I reported, I would appreciate
knowing so that I can attempt an upgrade to Lenny.
Thank you for your consideration.
