Sounds like we have some console problem -- perhaps with fbdev or something?
No clue what would be causing that, annoying.
Someone should perhaps file a bug, either on the
kernel-image-2.4.18-sun4u package or possibly boot-floppies (not sure
what would be responsible for it).

That's very strange! I told it to build with 2.4.18...

Same issue as above.

Thanks for the offer. Just continuing to test the installation
system, and filing bugs accordingly, is the best way to help.
I think we'll be releasing 3.0.21 officially tonight.
