Re: Problem installing Debian kFreeBSD
if you read the previous posts you'll learn that this seems to be a
"normal" thing. At least it was for me (on an IBM T43p)
Just answer "not" and press control F3 (or was it F5?) to finish your
installation. When you're done you'll probably have a fully functional
debian-bsd system. Otherwise if you have a connection then just
apt-get reinstall the kernel and wahtever you want.

I have tried to install Debian/kFreeBSD using the ISO image
(I used the latest one, 20061213). The target is a Toshiba
Tecra 8100 laptop.
I followed the instructions in the installation manual:
Booted (without ACPI); selected custom install (also tried express);
partitioned the disk (created one big FreeBSD partition besides the
linux one), created slices for /, swap, /var, /usr, /tmp. Then
selected minimum install, and commited.
The installer proceeded to copy files from the CD. At a certain point,
it stopped with this message:
| Unable to transfer the GENERIC distribution from cd0.
| Do you want to try to retrieve it again?
Answering YES several times didn't help. Also, burning a second CD
didn't fix it either. I have checked the md5 sum of the ISO image, and
it matches that on the FTP site.
So... What else can I do to try to debug this?
