Yaboot launches, but when i type "install" or "install-safe" I get a kernel panic, explaining that "tried to killed init." This is after loading the the kernel and switching the monitor resolution (and the flashing of the white/grey screen).

Also to note, the "install" mode loads a monitor resolution such that the left 3 characters are off the screen. It seems like one of those things where you need to adjust the horizontal size on a CRT, but I'm on an LCD, so I can't.

If you need more information, I could try to dictate the error messages I get on startup.

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.
