A. Boot from floppy - could not find boot and root images at debian.org,
sarge floppies did not work, used mirror.
B. Installer not entirely clear , in expert mode. For instance, the auto
partition tool, the text for it is truncated.
C. kernel -> linux-image-2.6.15-1-486
Since I am fairly certain mine is a Pentium Classic, and the 686 are for
Pentium Pro and above, I went with the 486.
after choosing the above kernel image, I chose 'yaird'
failure. I repartitioned.
I chose a couple other kernels..
failure. More repartioning
I again chose the above kernel image, and initramfs-tools - failure. I did
I chose again the same kernel image, and yaird.
Install to unclean target? YES
It worked. shrug.
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
and ideas you had during the initial install.>
expert hw-detect_pcmcia=false netcfg/disable_dhcp=true
Gee, I hope this is a pentium classic and this is the right kernel for it.
[Maybe I can find out in /var/log/installer/hardware-summary]
Hmm... some of these choices are tough. I had to go back and pick some more,
complicated by some descriptions truncated in the display, and no apparent
way to scroll.
Egads, it installed.. heh.
Post initial install thoughts:
Where is set up hostname?
where is configure aptitude?
Oh well, (apt-cdrom add) times 19.
aptitude is SIGSEGV dying every cd change, hmm what did I miss? (bug 377751)

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.
