Output of lspci -knn (or lspci -nn):


Base System Installation Checklist:

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


Initial boot:           [E] After apparently successful installation the machine fails to re-boot from hard disk with “Non system or disk error”

Detect network card:    [O ]

Configure network:      [O ]

Detect CD:              [O ]

Load installer modules: [O ]

Installation seemed to go ahead without any problems; only confusions I had were deciding what a “Domain” is and what “LVM” means in the partitioning bit
