Comments/Problems:

Installed from serial console using netinst CD. Everything went 
smoothly except for hard drive detection: the drive is hooked up to a 
Qlogic controller, which requires non-free firmware to be initialized.
As far as I can tell, d-i still does not have support for it, so 
before running the hard drive detection I had to drop into a shell and 
manually run the following commands:

wget http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-qlogic-di_0.9_all.udeb
udpkg -i firmware-qlogic-di_0.9_all.udeb
modprobe -r qla2xxx
modprobe qla2xxx

After that I was able to proceed with the installation. Same thing 
needed to be done before reboot: chroot into the installed system, 
mount /proc, install firmware-qlogic package (had to add non-free to 
sources.list), regenerate initrd using update-initramfs -k all -u.

Cheers.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Quoting Jurij Smakov (jurij@wooyd.org):

> wget http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-qlogic-di_0.9_all.udeb
> udpkg -i firmware-qlogic-di_0.9_all.udeb
> modprobe -r qla2xxx
> modprobe qla2xxx

Hence closing the installation report as this was a complete success.

Of course, offering a better way to do the above would be great but
that's indeed part of a more general wishlist  to have integrated
support for non-free drivers....which basically waits for someone to
do the work, IIRC.
