Re: alpha server 8 5/500
The installer program can not detect your scsi cdrom ..hence no driver, there is no ide on the mother board on this server. If there are boot floppies available(?) to get a network install that would be the way to go. I normally install NetBSD on this 21164 box that way from SRM console- >> b DVA0. Check the debian website for boot floopies..perhaps someone on this list can help.

i´ve also tried installing the newest debian-testing-alpha-kde-CD-1.iso but i´m getting the same error, booting from cd is ok, but when recognizing hardware it can´t find the cd-rom for install.
has anyone installed debian on a AS800 before?

Try lenny or testing disk 1, i just booted and installed testing on a Titan -ES45, out of the box everything worked. On another note building a custom
linux-2.26.23-12 kernel builds fine and boots but xinit fails with 'No /dev/fb0' support, this of course is xorg. All graphics/ fbdev kernel options are turned on.
Any help here would be appreciated.
