Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [O]
Partition hard drives:  [O]
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]

As you can see, the date/time output of 'uname -a' is completely wrong (my installation date is correct). The timezone should also be BST. I'm quite positive I selected the correct region in the installation (London), and this is what it came up with.

Now, I also said in the subject that only booting with the 'linux26' flag resulted in a working system. When I used the default 'linux' flag from the boot CD, the system installed (seemingly) correctly. However, upon rebooting into the new system, the screen became corrupt when (I think) the base-config screen should have appeared. By corrupt, I mean coloured vertical lines appeared across the screen, and it looked heavily distorted. I think I could see some characters on the screen, but each one would have filled almost half of the screen. I couldn't really do anything except type Ctrl-Alt-Delete, which didn't always work. (I tried resetting and trying again).

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.
