Debian-installer-version: I used the daily build 2004-08-06 sarge-i386-netinst.iso, md5sum 6b57dcc199c0a04ca143b998b2a0fa56. The boot-screen tells me "2004-08-04", debian installer tells me "Debian GNU/Linux testing "Sarge" - Official NetInst Snapshot i386 Binary-1 (20040805)" -- this was somehow confusing.
uname -a: Linux io 2.6.7-1-386 #1 Thu Jul 8 05:08:04 EDT 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

(In chronological order)
The CD-Rom-detection complained about not being able to load a module for the ethernet adapter (8139too), told me that the module might be available later (which was right, fortunately).
Network-hardware Setup then showed me a list of modules to be loaded, "8139too" and "floppy".
But the latter is certainly not a network device ;-)
May the reason be that this machine (Laptop) has no floppy ?
# modprobe floppy
FATAL: Error inserting floppy (/lib/modules/2.6.7-1-386/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko): No such device
My machine froze on the first reboot because the special kernel options i gave during the installer boot were not set ("noapic nolapic"). One should at least be warned of this behaviour.
"configuration of apt": I had to enter the debian package repository again, the settings of the 1st-stage installer seemed to be forgotten.
The package mozilla-xft was not installed by default (I selected "Desktop" as a task for the machine), so the fonts in mozilla (and galeon, too) looked really really ugly.
Aside from this everything went incredibly smooth and easy, the new installer is impressive.

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
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
