System Install checklist

detect network: O
load intaller mods. E <linux ide=nodma> O
detect hardrives: O
Partition hardrives: O Being forced to use,< linux ide=nodma>, I probably didn't do this right. (too much detail for me in expert mode)
crfeate file system: O
mount partitions: O correctly?
install base syst.: E
install boot loader: O
Comments/Problems: When doing install base systems, there was continious scrolling of -" hde media error (bad sector) drive ready seek complete error.
Buffer I/O error error=0x34 status=51". After much reading about using BIOS to slow down CD reader I figured this is out of my ability to fix. I did do two
integrity checks( MD5?). The first one gave me an error with a mozilla file, the next one gave me an error on another file, so I don't trust it. The installer hung on jfsutils-udeb file every time. Also, I tried to apt-get install installation-report reportbug, this did not work.
