Installed slink successfully, with small problems

Summary Information:
  Name:    Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho
  Date:    1998-01-04
  Source:  ftp://ftp.jyu.fi/Debian-install
  Method:  3 1/2 Floppy rescue disk, other images on a mounted 
  Machine: Celeron 266MHz, 64MB, 4.3GB disk, 33k modem,  GUS MAX sound
             card, Pilot PS/2 mouse (3 buttons)
  Result:  Install went fine with small problems

  Used dd to make the rescue floppy, downloaded the base system
  tarball and the drivers floppy image to the harddrive.  Completed the
  install procedure, rebooted and installed a Basic profile.

  The machine had two Debian installations, a production system
  running Potato and a testing system with Hamm.  This test install
  reused the common /home for these two installations and wiped
  the Hamm test installation.  The partition table was not modified.
  The root partition was at the end of the disk.

  After the color/monchrome selection, the "The installation program
  is determining the current state of the system" step took several
  minutes - far longer than usual for this system.

  The selection "make Linux bootable from hard disk" threw me back to
  the color/monochrome selection.  The third vc noted an exit status
  "b" for the process I assume to be responsible for this.

Here is my partition table:

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 523 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start      End   Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1        6    48163+  83  Linux native
/dev/hda2             7      523  4152802+   5  Extended
/dev/hda5             7       25   152586   83  Linux native
/dev/hda6            26      193  1349428+  83  Linux native
/dev/hda7           194      201    64228+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda8           202      497  2377588+  83  Linux native
/dev/hda9           498      523   208813+  83  Linux native

/dev/hda9 was the target root, /dev/hda6 was the target /home and
/dev/hda7 was the swap space.  Other partitions are part of the
production installation and was left untouched.

I will probably file a bug report about the last one.  Any comments
before I do?
