Firstly, after the reboot the notebook hang at looking at the second PCMCIA. There isn't any, so it couldn't find it.

It is most unfortunate that the only way out was a complete re-install with the pcmcia off. Half an hour lost.

Also, I took the opportunity to add the net-cfg option to not use dhcp.
This is almost deadly: it will never ask for the IP-address, did not ask for the kernel version to install (contrary to my first effort), and will come back after the reboot with DHCP.

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.
