On machines with Tulip and VIA-Rhine LAN cards I have
successfully installed 6.1 for i386, and the installer has
auto-detected the LAN card. When I try on machines with
NE2000 cards, the card is not auto-detected. When I manually
select the NE2000 driver I get a "resource busy" message.

Another point. When I reach the point of setting the FTP
parameters for install, the option to set a specific login
ID and password (rather than anonymous FTP) seems to have
disappeared in 6.1

Like a lot of others reporting here, I also get lots of
Python errors when trying an upgrade. Only a fresh install
seems to work, but this is hardly a fresh bug report.
