* installer failed to detect 3Com Etherlink III card (as the hardware
  was really a very old one I am sure this is not a bug)

* I wasn't able to set the ReiserFS file-system for the root partition
  (I made about 3-4 tries, each time starting the installation from the
  very beginning). It seems that when selecting ReiserFS Installer
  failed to set the / mounting point (ending with message: No root
  file-system is defined). Finally I had to choose ext3 to be able to
  finish the installation

  A note: recently I used an older version of the installer for my
  Dell notebook (and two other notebooks) and there were no problems
  with setting reiserfs for the root partition.

* A personal comment: the Debian-Installer is really a pleasure to work with

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.
