Closing this bug, since i doubt the submitters cares, and it is woody or potato boot-floppies related anyway.
I am closing this bug report.
The submitter did not reply to my call for further information, and this
is something affecting the potato or woody boot-floppies and 2.2 kernels
I asked for feedback on this one on october 6, more than two month ago,
and got no replies except spams. Let's close this, and be reopened if
the problem happens again with the new debian-installers.
