-When repartionning, I wanted to change the size of the existing windows
partition. I got a warning message regarding writing changes although I
didn't make any changes. Worse, it wasn't clear if the resize will throw
everything away or keep data. Fortunately it keeped all the data, but I
think a message could inform the user about this point.
-If "assisted partitionning" is used after some manual configuration,
all this configuration seems lost : I had specificied a mount point for
the windows partition and it went lost when I used the "assisted
-Grub didn't detect the windows installation
-For the packages selection I choosed the first item (I don't remember
the name), and I noticed it downloaded mozilla and openoffice packages
for all languages. May be a selection of wanted languages could be added
to avoid to download rarely used languages
-XFree installation gave me a wrong keyboard (us instead of the french I
had specified at the beginning of debian install), and didn't generate
modes for 1024x768 resolutions.
-Kde default font was "Charter" which didn't have any special french chars
so I had to change it to "Bitstream Charter"

I didn't test the Wifi card nor the ACPI things.

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.
