The Debian Squeeze installer USB stick crashes when I try to run it on 
my EEE PC.

When I use the installer in my EEE PC, the installer pauses after I 
select "Install", and a few seconds later garbage appears on the top 
edge of the screen, dances around a while, then everything stops. 
(Oddly, I successfully installed Debian on my PC with the same stick.)

To make myself an installer USB stick I followed the "Squeeze (testing) 
using an updated d-i" instructions from here:


I'm pretty sure that I've foolowed the instructions correctly. I used 
the versions of these files that existed on Saturday, September 11 2010:



Please help. I'm very keen on using Debian on my EEE PC, I've used it on 
my desktop computers for years, I'm sure I'll be able to patiently set 
things up once I'm past step 0.
