After choosing de_DE as language in the beginning of the installation
process the language is switched to German. The next screen, the keyboard
(keymap) contains several small misspellings (let me know if this needs to
be reported differently)
1. In the header the german words "Wählen" and "für" are displayed
incorrectly, maybe because the german umlauts are not interpreted correctly
at this stage (later during the installation process they are displayed
2. The language choice for the keyboard for Finland is ""Finnisch" and not
3. The translation for no deadkeys (here "keine Tottasten) doesn't exist in
4. All languages should start with a capital letter as this looks much more

Once the keyboard language is selected (here: deutsch (keine Tottasten)) the
hardwarerecognition is started and the debian installer components are

During the loading of the debian installer components the word "Retrieving"
is directly translated to "Empfange" which does not fit. The word "Lade" for
example might be a better choice.

Ok now back to the technical description. The PCMCIA card recognitation
seems to have a problem in the beta 4 of the installer. If a network card is
when booting from the installer CD, the pcmcia network card will not be
detected and can also not even be added correctly afterwards.
I found out that the pcmcia network cards can however be used correctly if
they are plugged in after the automatic recognition has run. If the card is
plugged in then and the right modul selected it works. I'm not sure if this
issue exists for all pcmcia network cards, but I could verify for a 3Com
(3c589_cs) and also for a Xircom REM56G-100 (xirc2ps_cs).

Install Boat Loader:
The boot loader GRUB installs but doesn't recognize the NTFS partition
(Windows 2000) that exists as first partition on the harddisk (/dev/hda1).
As I saw,
this has already been reported.

Mount partitions:
Mounting with option read only of the installed NTFS partition worked fine.

Thanks for the great work so far and let me know if you need further

Kind regards

Thorsten Schäfer

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.
