Cool, you are the first person of who tried the installer and gave me
some feedback :)

Hm, I just retried the installation in kvm and creating the filesystem
worked for me. Just to be sure, did you restart the system to make
gnumach reread the partition table? I'm not sure how to debug this
further, I'd go with trying to manually create the filesystem, double
check the partition table and maybe boot grml or the like and see
whether mkfs.ext2 running on linux likes it.

While playing around with the image I noticed that the bittorrent
tracker I used went offline (thanks Hollywood >,<) so I'll publish a
new torrent file with updated tracker information.

I also thought about mastering a new live cd containing updated
packages and other goodies (like the debian-ports signing key from the
official archives :) but on the other hand I'm not sure if it's worth
the trouble seeing that Jérémies work on the d-i seems to be
progressing nicely and quite frankly I got almost no feedback despite
being mentioned on last months newsletter (thanks for that ;).

(btw, the installation just finished in my kvm instance and yielded
a booting debian system.)
