All ran smoothly. I had performed a few Debian intallations beforehand, so I knew how the process should go. The only obscure point I found during previous installations is the partitioning of the disk. I got the wrong impression that, at that point, I MUST do some partitioning and the creation of a file system with no escape. To remedy this, I usually do the partitioning with other tools,
like qtparted by booting the Knoppix Live CD.

In this case, since we were installing over a pre-existing Windows XP installation,
where the hard disk consisted of a single NTFS partition,
I shrinked that NTFS partition by using Partition Magic (commercial software for Windows). Then I used qtparted to create a reiserfs partition in the newly freed disk space.

I was able to use hardware acceleration for the nvidia GeForce FX Go 5200 graphic card by using the related Debian package. Almost out of the box! The xfree configuration file XF86Config-4 with 1280 x 800 Wide View TFT resolution
I copied from  http://zzrough.free.fr/toshiba-m30.php

Here is part of the file dists/sarge/Release of the installer CD image,
with some info about the Debian installer I used:

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.
