I can confirm that this problem still exists in 5.0r3 powerpc netinst.
I have an iMac G3 on which this occurs at every install attempt, so it's
very reproducible here. because of that I have not been able to get
lenny installed on it.
there is one thing about this machine that may be a clue:
the hardware clock on the machine appears to have reset to Jan 1 of some
year, probably 1970 but without a date command installed it's hard to
tell. the system time being so far off might be confusing something in
the installer, but I can't begin to guess what.
