<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

Note 1:	This machine has two network interfaces.  The first is the
	10BaseT "bmac" controller that is standard on the
	motherboard. The second is a D-Link 10/100-BaseT "DFE-530TX+"
	PCI adapter card. For the present installation, I want to
	ignore the first interface and use the second because it's faster.

	The configure Network Hardware phase saw both interfaces and
	installed modules for each. bmac for the onboard and 8139too
	for the D-Link.

	The Configure Network phase asked which one I wanted to use as
	"primary".  I told it to use the D-Link. It.  It asked if I
	wanted to use DHCP, I said no.  I answered the questions about
	network addresses etc (letting it take the default address for
	the DNS server, which is the only way I have discovered to
	make it work on this machine -- see Bug#261460). After the
	last question, it proceeded automatically to load installer
	modules.  It never asked about the other interface.

	All went well for the rest of the install until it came time
	for the reboot...

Note 2: After the reboot, it installed the bmac module for the onboard
	NIC, and ignored the D-Link NIC entirely!  Since there was no
	ethernet connected to the onboard interface, this didn't work
	too well.  After some casting about, I determined that the
	problem was that the /etc/modules file had a "bmac" in it but
	no "8139too" for the D-Link.  I fixed that (so that it now had
	an "8139too" but no "bmac") and rebooted again.  All went well
	after that.

Bottom line: When the machine has two NICs and you want to use the
       second and ignore the first, you're out of luck, unless you
       have the expertise to manually diddle the configuration files.

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.
