Default Bug#602853: Workaround documented in errata

Thanks for providing a patch, it has been on my todo list for a while,
however I was not able to find time to take care of it so far.

One of the users affected by this problem has confirmed that booting
with 'video=atyfbff' provides a workaround for this issue [0]. It
has now been (or should be) documented in release errata [1].

Best regards,

That's the errata for d-i. I'll push something similar to the release
notes for squeeze. Thanks.

Cheers,

I can't see that on http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/errata,
did that get missed?
