Failing to install on an FIC-PA2007 mb with an AMD K6-166
product: Debian 1.3.1 CD
Various halts and core dumps to the screen during the boot phase.
When booting from thr CD the boot screen comes up ok, then pressing return
the boot will abort. This is not allways in the same place. Note: if it
type in rescue, then the boot will continue to the point where it tries to
mount the boot partion, then fails. This is a clean system with no disk
partitions on the drive at all. Also, the RedHat Linux version will get
past the boot phase (but, it falls over elsewhere ... but they state that
they dont support the K6). I have followed the notes on the CD, and the
BIOS has all the caches turned off, and not shadowing of devices.
Board: FIC PA-2007 - 1mb on board cache
CPU: AMD K6-166
mem: 32mb SDRAM
