When selecting ext3 filesystem for the /boot partition, it gives the
following error:

lqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqu [!!] Partition disks tqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqk
x                                                                       x
x Aboot requires /boot to be located on an ext2 partition on a bootable x
x device.  This means that either the root partition must be an ext2    x
x filesystem, or you must have a separate ext2 partition mounted at     x
x /boot.                                                                x
x                                                                       x
x Currently, /boot is located on a partition of type ext3.  If you keep x
x this setting, you will not be able to boot your Debian system using   x
x aboot.                                                                x
x                                                                       x
x Use unsupported filesystem type for /boot?                            x
x                                                                       x
x     <Go Back>                                       <Yes>    <No>     x
x                                                                       x

When selecting 'yes', the installer loops back to partitioning menu.

Now, making a new partition for /boot, and setting it as ext2. When going
forward, it gives the same error message - even when the /boot partition
_is_ an ext2 file system.

Is it really so that aboot can't boot from ext3 partition?

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.
