I would like to send a patch for the errata, where is it kept in svn? Also against which package should bugs against the errata be filed? In http://bugs.skolelinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1395 I've documented two workarounds: a.) remove the usbstick after the firmware has been loaded b.) to document how to do it with the usbstick kept plugged in: wait til the end, change to a shell, run: "chroot /target" and then: "grub-install /dev/cciss/c0d0". that should work too. Also, it would be good test if the bug is still present in the current daily images - unfortunatly I lack the hardware to test myself, so I've cc:ed the original submitter of the bug. A Debian-Edu user gave the squeeze daily a try today, but unfortunatly it didnt load the firmware from the usbstick in the first place... regards, Holger
