[Debian] installer script

I did partition the card myself after I ran the installer and it failed,
then I tried to do everything step by step (skipping the partition
step). This proceeded to the part where it actually downloads debian
packages and attempts to install them, and about 15 minutes through that
it failed. I'll run the script again and post a log later today.
Thanks for the help.
