I just grabbed the 4th copy of the netinstall cd, maybe k3b will write a 
good copy next time... First 2 burns failed at the switch to initrd file 
point.

What linux really needs is the ability to write a new install to a new HD 
which is what I'll be doing with the netinstall, and do it while the old 
system is fully functional so problems can be fixed as they are 
encountered. Very disappointing to see a disk error pop up at sector 
28xxx after 10 minutes of reading an ancient but freshly burnt cd image.  
Loading the initrd doesn't seem to be doing anything after another 7 or 
8 minutes so you ctrl-alt-del and reboot to wheezy.
New burn done, and I'll reboot to it as soon as I hit ctrl-return


Cheers, Gene Heskett
