I downloaded the latest base2_1.tgz. I found that there is no /dev/hda* after /dev/hda8... This caused me trouble because my root partition for Debian is /dev/hda10 (I also have hda11 and hda12). Shall I report this in the Debian bug tracking or not (what is the exact name of the package ?). Hub -- .sig on strike. Sorry for the inconveniance.
