When I did the install of grml on a Dell Latitude c-800 laptop I didn't 
have it connected to a network.  On install completion and reboot, the 
laptop puts out two short high beeps as it starts up.  It could be no 
operating system was found.  I tried installing to mbr for boot manager 
maybe wrong choice. Earlier I couldn't get up and down arrow keys to work 
but last night I held down the capslock and hit the up and down arrows and 
speakup did seem to move up and down menu choices.  I didn't figure out 
how to get focus onto current selection once one of these choices was 
highlighted but the rest appeared to work.  If I come up with no operating 
system and no speech tonight, I'll do a reinstall with a live network 
connection to see if that will make any useful difference.
