After rebooting (when I assumed the desktop would be displayed), gray/white blinking horizontal lines appeared on the screen for several seconds, and they were replaced by black and light green horizontal lines. After restarting the computer, the same thing happened. I reinstalled Debian two more times, using two different monitors (an LCD and a CRT) with the same results. I assume the problem may be caused by my video card, an NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 (32 MB), which I've read is a troublemaker. During at least one of the installations, I chose to install the "nv" driver. Fedora Core installed with no trouble the previous evening. Tonight I'll install MEPIS and Libranet.

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
