Bug#604472: firmware-b43-installer but after reboot I got a black screen!

Package: firmware-b43-installer
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

I installed Debian testing (squeeze) minimal cd install. I'm using openbox
desktop it works great! But when went I installing
my wifi driver (bcm4312), I installed the package firmware-b43-installer using
after reboot I got a black screen nothing shows up! I have used the firmware
driver firmware-b43-installer many times with no problem for Ubuntu minimal
install,  but in debian squeeze it won't work. I noticed when I turn my wifi
switch off the system boots to the desktop but than crashes.
I hope this gets fixed before squeeze gets released.
Sorry for my bad English!
Thank u!
