I mean which language and profile choices did you select during
installation?  Did you change the desktop selection on the boot

Hm, never seen that one myself.  Are you sure it is relevant and not
happening also with successful installs?  Anything interesting in
/var/log/auth.log from the failing login attempt?

That is a workaround, but I would love to figure out the root cause.
The PXE setup inherit the proxy setting from the host, and if for some
reason this is wrong, the PXE setup will be wrong too.

Probably the DNS test reporting that it can't look up
www.skolelinux.org.  Did the machine have Internet connectivity and
access to do DNS lookups externally during boot?

This is the indicator of the proxy problem.  I am not sure how to
trigger it.  Perhaps you can help by telling more about the network
environment where you installed the main server?  I suspect it is
relevant, as I do not get this bug myself when I test.

Happy hacking
