Comments/Problems:

WLAN does not work, neither with ath5k nor with madwifi from Lenny non-free.
Apparently needs bleeding edge madwifi or 2.6.27 to work.

Everything else worked fine: Sound, most hotkeys, suspend to RAM and disk. I'm very impressed.
Encrypted LVM setup is also very nice exept for blockdev-wipe that took ~ 1h to wipe the 80GB hard disk before installing.
Maybe some note to the user would be helpful: "Go have a break and come back later" or so.

While installing madwifi I was a bit surprised that contrib and non-free aren't in sources.list by default any more.
I haven't installed production systems with d-i for a long time, as I am happy with FAI.

Regards,
Christopher
