Does that mean that Debian cann't be installed "easily" on a machine with
a Buslogic FlashPoint PT and no IDE disks? I'm going to buy a SCSI adapter
to replace the old AHA-1542CF I have right now, and based on a
recommendation on debian-user I'm going for the FlashPoint... and I think
many people on that list may be influenced by that recommendation, too.

Is this going to change soon... I mean, 2.0 is still months away, and it
kind of scares me to think of many users facing "way till 2.0"
