sarge rc2 net install on old GatewayGP, Badness??

Im trying to install the Debian Sarge rc2 and after harware detection, during the initial boot, it freezes with a blank blue screen. I did a dmesg on another vterm during this freeze and got this line:
Badness in device_release at drivers/base/core.c:85
Is this some hardware conflict with the kernel or something?
This error is reproduced everytime I try to install on this specific system.
Any suggestions?

The system is an old Gateway GP model with a pentium 3 and 256 megs of ram and on-board graphics.

just to update:
I downloaded the first woody .iso and changed the sources to testing after installation. Updating to testing now so the issue was resolved...if anyone cares

I guess thats why they call that net install cd a release candidate
