1) Installer shoud tell user that there are many options to install from the
beginning and not say "for help press F1" and hide a lot of important
possibilities in some F1 options that have to be entered manually at

In this way many good options get lost.

2) The installer doesn´t accept the same password for root and user - that´s
OK, but
when done so, the installer just throws the installation process back two
steps without any comment!

3) the configuration of apt only works once! Going back and add sources is
not possible!!! The installer jumps over the process to add sources and asks
again for software packages (desktop, server, and so on...)

4) the detection of grafik and display, mouse and so on does not work - for
the display resolution is not made properly. And the user has to add too
many informations, that may not be easy to give.

5) I would have expected a functioning gnome after installation - that did
not work as well.

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.
