installing debian 3.0 on a toshiba laptop
I'm trying to install debian woody 3.0 r1 on a toshiba
I'm installing from a CD-Rom. Everything is going fine
during the installation process (except the PCMCIA: if
I try to install it, the computer freezes).
But, when I re-boot the computer, I get a kernel panic
after a few hexadecimal code lines.
I've tried to install different flavors, with
different boot-options and different drivers, but
nothing will work.
What is funny is that Knoppix 3.3 seems to work all
right. I installed it on another partition of the hard
drive. From there, I am able to have a look at the
partition where I am trying to install Debian. Using a
"chroot" command, I can edit the "fstab" and run
"config-base", which works fine except for the apt
configuration (the program cannot recognize my CDROM).
Configuring lilo manually (I also tried several
options), I hoped to succeed in booting Debian, but
again, I got the dreaded "kernel panic".
Ten nights work or so have not been enough to solve
the problem, so I'm asking for some help: what should
I'm totally new to GNU/Linux - please help me not to
go back to windows... :(
