failed install report on a brand new blade server
Debian-installer-version: debian installer beta2

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it
it boots ok but when it tries to detect the cdrom unit it fails. I tries
again and I guess that it would ask for a floppy with drivers, but since the
floppy is also usb is not deteded.
That's the end of the installation process becouse since the cdrom is not
installed it can't continue. I am stuck and I am thinking on forgeting to
install debian at all on that machine.
I have tried with pxe following the tutorials (
) and http://www.debianplanet.com/node.php?id=818 but it didn't work either.
The dhcp, pxe and tftp is working but it didn't load the kernel.
I am out of ideas after expending two days on this issue and looking during
hours over google. Any suggestion or help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much for your work.
