Supported Architectures (for the latest installer candidate): [alpha]
[arm] [hppa] [i386] [ia64] [m68k] [mips] [mipsel] [powerpc] [sparc]
You can even try testing out the fresh of the presses debian-installer
pre-rc2 release, they are always looking for more installation reports
from non-x86 hardware.
OT: Nice to see the new installer has support for online resizing of
ntfs partitions, which should mean for once and for all this bugbear of
Linux installations can be put to rest
Disclaimer: I have never had root on a sparc box, I've only used it on
x86 and alpha. I do love debian! My views may therefore be tainted :-)
