Am checking with the 5964 (Radeon 9200 SE) right now on a cleanly installed
d-i install without any of the extra tasksel desktop stuff. A first few comments : 

  1) i still get proposed a macintosh keyboard by default. i need an pc105
  one. Maybe it would be possible to check the subarch, if it is a pmac, then
  propose macintosh, if not, then propose pcXXX stuff.

  2) it proposed me the us keyboard. Maybe this could be taken from the chosen
  language used for the console and found in the debconf database ? 

  3) it is not possible to propose an empty monitor lines. I have a DVI
  connected LCD flat panel, and comenting out the monitor frequencies works

Ok, apart from that, the 9200 SE (5964) worked fine, will check the pure 9200
(5961) later and report back.

That said, killing X from the console messes up the console, but this is
probably a kernel issue, or a radeonfb<->X radeon driver interaction.
