o I used a USB floppy device to install the system. It worked, to my surprise.
  However, when the prompt for the root floppy appeared, the LDM/SCSI code in
  the kernel spewed some stuff about how /dev/sda had nothing useful on it.
  This could confuse users.

o The partitioner asked me whether I wanted to partition my floppy drive 
  (/dev/sda). Bad idea...

o I wonder why, since we are moving to UTF-8, we don't set SCREEN_FONT by default
  in /etc/console-tools/config to latarcyrheb-sun16 and the default locale to UTF-8
  for American English installs? It's a good feature and if executed correctly it
  is transparent to the user.

o I think the kernel install should make /vmlinuz and /initrd.img symlinks for the
  running kernel so that one doesn't have to run update-grub every time. The kernel
  build system is in charge of moving vmlinuz to vmlinuz.old on a new install, for

Overall, pretty impressive...

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.
