Loved the graphical installer, very slick. Anyway, to business.

Ages ago I reported that DHCP didn't work from the netinst

I suspect that issue still exists as DHCP still fails.

Moving on with static settings, I got to the point of setting up the disks.

The mobo has an Adaptec U320 SCSI controller (aic79xx), and I have several
drives connected (with various old partitions on each that are all going to
be wiped). The installer reports no drives were detected.

I fired up the console, and ls /dev/sd* shows all of the drives are there;
/dev/sda-d (plus all the usual partition devices)

fdisk lets me examine them, and all have their expected partition tables,
showing the drives are accessible just fine. I have no idea why the
installer does not detect them.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze Beta2) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
