Base System Installation Checklist:

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

Reboot error appears to be mostly operator error. Had never installed on
drive this big before (30 GB) Both Grub and LILO freaked out on me until
I made the boot partition.

My only comment of a negative nature is that when the system is doing
background tasks (newfs, etc..) it would be nice to see some sign of
Probably because I work on Solaris and am accustomed to the little
cursor whenever the system is thinking about something. I'm not asking
for a 
progress bar or anything like that, just something to break up that
plain blue
screen a little bit. (Those of us that have escaped from the Windows
world are
still a little paranoid about blue screens. ha-ha)

This was a Windows replacement install. I have been running Debian for
some time
on this machine on another drive and my laptop from work. I could no
longer think
of any reason to waste my disk space with Windows as I no longer
required it for
any tasks that I could not perform in Debian. That takes this system
from triple-
booting Win2k-FreeBSD-Debian to Debian-FreeBSD. I feel so much cleaner
now when I
turn on my machine. Keep up the great work!

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.
