Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

You need to change the text below this box to make it more explcit how I can attach more than one file. It took a while to figure out I needed to use Extra Options to attach a file but now I don't see anyway to attach the partman file.

ah... so I can add another
anyway
it surprised me when the installer crashed
I have install Ubuntu MANY times without a hitch

Pretty neat being able to file this from the installer.

Other notes...
I used a USB flash drive instead of a CDROM.
Trying to upgrade to a machine with a RevoDrive SSD but first have to get Ubuntu installed onto a bootable drive.
