Its around 12MB or something such.

can you do :

  modify /etc/yaboot.conf, to add DEBIAN_FRONTEND=newt to the append= line.

  once you are in the installer, go to console 2.

  add : "disable-module=nvidia" to /etc/directfbrc (using echo ... >> or nano).

  add : "disable-module=linux_input" to /etc/directfbrc (using echo ... >> or nano).

  type : export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=gtk

  and then : debconf -f gtk -o d-i /usr/bin/main-menu

And report back.

Your /etc/fb should be : "0 NV#", where # is some number, can you confirm this ?
