    Debian Installer snapshot

    I've tried downloading snapshots of both SID and Sarge to try the new installer, but I have yet to get a working image - the furthest I've gotten was to "Install base system" where the 24-12-03 SID image complained about lacking the release file.

    There must be a known good image somewhere, could someone point me in the right direction?

    Do you mind afloppy install? I'd recomend tring the beta floppies at http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/. They also have daily snapshots of the netinstall CD for Sarge.

    I got Debian installed using the libranet 2.7 cd image - and now I remember why I don't like Debian anymore...

    Back to FreeBSD I guess.

    Bad decision making, reinventing the wheel..

    Infact the only thing I like is good policy making, like the menu policy - but for that we have freedesktop.org now.

    Re:Debian Installer snapshot

    I just installed it using the Debian-Installer Beta 2, with the boot iso and it has made great strides as far as picking up hardware.

    It picked up my VIA AC '97 onboard sound card, Liteon CD burner and everything else without problems.

    It still looks alot like the old installer though, but the HW is being detected much better.
