Comments/Problems:

I tried the installation according to 5.1.3 of the manual ("booting
from linux using LILO or GRUB") with lilo (as of woody).

I tried it with the images from
http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/daily/hd-media/ (both 2.4
and 2.6) and from
http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/testing/main/installer-i386/beta4/images/hd-media/
(only 2.4).

Both 2.4 cases ended with the error message:
Cannot open root device "" or 3a:04

The 2.6 boot ended with the error message:
RAMDISK: incomplete write (-28 != 32768) 8388608

In all three cases there was a final kernel panic.

lilo-configuration is:
image=/boot/d-i-20040626/vmlinuz
    label=d-i
    initrd=/boot/d-i-20040626/initrd.gz
    append="devfs=mount,dall"
    optional



I'm now going to try my luck with the netinst.iso of beta-4.


Cheers,
Andi

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
reasons:
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
  Installer.
- 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.
