I download the _Official net install images for the "testing" release_
about once a month for a few months now, todays (August 13th) was the
closest I have gotten to getting an install working:

* Keyboard Detection Failed, just skipped it

* One of the two systems I have doesn't have a floppy, though it keeps
trying to detect it.

* One of the systems systems has an eepro100, it doesn't detect that the
e100 driver works with it.

* Disk partitioning returns errors, doing Alt-F2 and using fdisk works

* It the partition selector I can't see where I mounted what partition
because the devfs device names push it off to the right.

* In the partition selector, it don't let me manually enter where to
mount a partition more then once

* And finally, at the end where I it tries to download the
/debian/dists/sarge/Release file from my local apt-proxy, it just sits
there at 0% forever.  Even though I can download the file from Alt-F2
with wget no problem.

But the improvements over the last couple of months have been great!
