There was a problem with partioning my harddisk. My harddrive was partioned with the Acronis Bootseltor
tool, which can also partion a hardisk. Once a time I moved and resized my partions with this tool.
So the install-program didn't find any existing partition. I did not want to kill all datas on this disk, so I abourt the installation.
On my old PIII 600 I tried the Beta 3 also till I came to the partition point. On this maschine is also Acronis Bootselektor running, but theres no problem with the hardisk.
Maybe there could be any difference, because on the PIII I also boot from Acronis Bootselektor, on my Laptop (the PC this install-report belongs to) Lilo is the choice to select the operating system.
I wanted to install via net with my Orinoco Wavelan PCMCI WLAN card. Detecting this tool worked very well. ifconfig was ok, and pinging from another pc worked.

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
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
