Ouch. I hope you have backups and/or nothing important on your hard drive.
fortunately, nothing too important as I'd flattened it when installing cortez's android.
it's kind of funny, really, as I'd installed cacko with katastrphos kernel + new modules + kat's WM sound driver and got it just right. then I'd partitioned the microdrive, formatted it, copied on all the debian files, added the new kernel, copied over kat's sharp kernel, put a few scripts in place, and then installed the yonggun kernel, and so was on the very last stage to have dual booting ready. booted the new yonggun kernel but it wouldn't mount the hard drive 'cos I'd forgotten to put journalling on, so I had to restore sharp kernel to boot cacko to turn on journalling. So, I was at the very very last step when I wiped out the entire debian install
The installer asks whether or not you would like to format the internal drive. Only 'y', 'n' and the Enter key are accepted as input. The Enter key accepts the default, in the case of disk formatting this is (unfortunately for you) 'y'. I guess pressing Ctrl+C contains the Enter-keycode? Or did you press Enter after the Ctrl+C? Anyhow, you haven't convince me that this is a bug
. I could of course set the default to 'n', just to prevent any more harm.
