    Very well done overall.  I like how aptitude is installed by
    default.  I also like how it skipped many of the (usually
    redundant) steps in the old install, like loading modules
    (assuming autodetect works).

    It was interesting how it refrained from bugging me, since
    things were moving along fine without my input.  The number of
    prompts was kept to a minimum, which is probably ideal for a
    non-expert install.

    Only two real issues, neither particularly problematic, and both
    possibly intentional behaviour.

    One, as I recall, the partitioner seemed to number partitions
    "backwards" if I placed them at the end of the partitioned space,
    i.e. numbering them by the order they were created rather than
    their position on the disk.  I don't know how it would have
    actually written this to disk, or if writing logical partitions
    out of order is even possible, but it was the opposite behaviour
    from the old Debian install partitioning tool (cfdisk) and hence
    confused me.

    Two, I noticed mention of LVM in the install process.  I chose not
    to use those options because I didn't want my root on LVM.  I was
    pleased to note that the partitioner offered LVM physical volume
    allocation.  However, I couldn't seem to locate the ability to
    allocate LVM logical volumes.  Furthermore, unlike my previous
    Debian installs, there was no big gap between the last mounting of
    a filesystem and the installing of the base system -- a gap where
    I could use a terminal to perhaps set up the appropriate mounts.

    So I'm left building my LVM setup after the initial install,
    and moving parts of the existing system (/usr, etc.) into it.
    Not a big deal.

    Overall, an excellent system.  Having seen how much the basic
    install has been trimmed down, I'll be sure to use the expert
    install next time and see how it fares by comparison.

Most of the issues I mentioned have been dealt with, and I'm pretty
sure the system I made the installation report on has long since been
retired.  Subsequent installs have gone fine, and sarge is several
releases out of date by now.  So I'm closing my own report due to age.
