1. The partitioner did not let me choose a mount point for my existing
/home partition (reiserfs, hda9). I could choose the 'use existing data on
this partition' option, but contrary to the 15th April netinst build, no
mount point option then appeared.
2. I chose to reformat hda8 as reiserfs and mount it as /. I also chose to
delete hda7, which was a small ext2 partition. The face icons on the main
installer screen showed this correctly. But when I finished the main
partitioner screen and was asked to confirm a summary of the changes, it
claimed I was going to format hda7 with reiserfs. I cancelled the changes,
and then only chose to format hda8, doing nothing to hda7. The summary was
correct that time.
3. There didn't seem to be any problems with the network during the initial
installation boot, but during the first 'real' bootup, network
configuration failed, saying there was no such device eth0. However, eth0
works fine under Knoppix, and ethernet also works under XP. My card is a
(I'm not sure if this is related to the reason I'm reinstalling Debian,
which is that after several days of no rebooting a months-old Sarge netinst
partition, the next bootup claimed eth0 did not exist, even though eth0 had
been working perfectly.)

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.
