Good news! The debian-installer is still not working, but I ported the

The source-code for the new live-cd-installer is here:
The slideshows are in the slideshows directory.
The installer itself isn't an advanced piece of technology: It just
dumps the live-cd environment to a disk, chroots into the resulting
image and reconfigures the machine to yield a working system. Simple,
but it works.
And it means you are finally able to install Tanglu!
Cheers & good night!
