This ISO behaves similarily to the Debian "netinst" image. It will automatically enable Debian non-free, debian-multimedia, and the Mint Felicia Main repository, as well as install the Mint Debian packages. (Yes, this now includes Synatpic. )
The only known bugs as of now are that the splash screen doesn't seem to work (at least in VirtualBox) and the Logout/Quit dialogs have the panel background tiled on them, which doesn't look very nice but works just fine.
If you have a VM (e.g. VirtualBox, VMware, QEMU) or testing machine, please test it out and let me know what you think.

I hope to have a full install CD/DVD available then as well, containing all the system components so you don't have to download GNOME, Xorg, etc. (The current one is based on the Debian netinst CD.) If it doesn't fit on a DVD I'll make a netinst version available as well.

I have installed and I am running Mint Debian for three days now. It's working very well except for some minor bugs.
Good work! I hope this will be the beginning of an official project.
Here are some observations:
_ Installation to disk takes a little over 45 minutes, since most of the packages are downloaded through the Internet.
_ The text installer ( like Ubuntu Alternate CD ), works well if one is careful and follows instructions at every step.
_ The mint tools work.
Mintinstall is great.
Mintmenu is OK and the uninstall feature works well.
Add-remove Applications works well.
MintUpdate: the icon on the panel doesn't work ( But MintUpdate works from the Control Panel )
_ Right clicking on the Time and Date on the panel doesn't give you a choice of different times except UTC.
_ Some packages installed by Synaptic (Gparted for example) won't launch in the main menu but they work in the Debian menu:
Example: System>Administration>Partition editor
_ After logging in, my screen goes dark and freezes (it may be just a bug in my system). It works after a restart.
That's all for the time being.
