completely installing from cdrom did not work so i choosed to completely
install from net instead and that worked without problems..

The only thing is that it can not install the bootloader... the bootloader
should be copied to /dev/sda1 with dd but since i made automatic
partitioning /dev/sda1 is / and so i don't think this is a good idea ;) but
at least the system works...
The installer should perhapse make automaticaly a 10mb or so empty partition
at /dev/sda1 and install the kernel in it if installing on prep machines...
then installation would be perfect ;)

I will try to build a CD initrd myself since i have a working system again
