Image version:

Machine: DELL, Inspiron 8600
Processor: Pentium M, 1.7 GHz

Overall install:        [ ]


Steps / observations
1. Partman displayed my hard disk correctly. 
2. I have chosen a manual partitioning. 
3. Partman displayed my current partitioning. 
4. I created successfully a partition in the unused space: primary 8 GB,
ext3 on /
5. Partman did not allow to create an other partition (for swap) in the rest
of the unused space.

I suspect partman is unable to create a logical partition in the free space
(in that particular situation). 
(Having a good bunch of RAM, that does not hurt me to much).

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.
