Report of slink installation with 2.1.4 disks

No problems this time. My Finnish keyboard works and the problems
with PCMCIA after the first boot are gone. Great work Enrique and

  machine:    Abit BH6 mother board, Celeron 300A overclocked to 450MHz

  task:       Base system installation (slink)
  source:     boot-floppies 2.1.4

  Used dd to create rescue and drivers floppies. Prepared NFS server on
  another machine to export directory containing base2_1.tgz and other
  boot related files (rescue, drivers, etc.). The machine running NFS
  server has also complete mirror of slink and hamm and was later used
  to install the rest of the packages with dselect/apt over HTTP.

  This time I had all the partition ready from the previous test, so
  the installation was just a matter of pressing Enter. No problems
  with the base installation.

  The only complaint remaining is the DNS server order, maybe 2.1.5
  disks will have "Other system" as the default.

  After the first reboot I skipped the "pre-rolled software
  configurations"[1] and went straight to the dselect. In
  dselect I set up atp to use http like this:
    deb http://myserver/debian/debian-non-US frozen non-US
    deb http://myserver/debian frozen main contrib non-free

  Then I just chose the default selection and had no problems
  with it. All the packages were downloaded and installed without
  errors. It was very nice and smooth :)
