I had problems installing kernel 2.6 on Seagate ST380013AS SATA drive.
I put old 2GB Seagate ATA HD in the box, retaining SATA drive but 
setting BIOS to boot off old ATA drive.
I also disabled onboard LAN and chucked an old RealTek PCI card in as 
well, coz I was having probs with the onboard network driver.
Installed base system from sid-amd64-netinst.iso.
did # aptitude dist-upgrade.
This installed a new 2.6.9 kernel and other stuff.
did # aptitude install gnome-desktop
    # aptitude install gdm
Could not install x-window-system at first so I did another
    # aptitude dist-upgrade
    # aptitude install x-window-system
Now I have a working Desktop. I have installed a few packages like 
evolution, mozilla-firefox, gimp, inkscape, gftp and most seems to be ok
so far. USB camera is working. Epiphany is crashing but I will Google on
I can ping the other Debian system on the network.
df -h shows the exported directory from the other machine.
pan64:~# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1             1.8G  1.2G  485M  72% /
tmpfs                 500M     0  500M   0% /dev/shm
pan:/home/norv        2.9G  2.2G  512M  82% /home/norv
I have a basic Desktop (no sound or dvd playback yet) and I can email, 
browse the net, download photos from my camera, edit text and graphic
files etc. There is 485MB to spare on the IDE drive. The SATA drive has
not been recognised at all.
I hope this install gives me a chance to get the SATA driver sorted and 
reinstall onto the big 80GB SATA disk.

A big thank you to all Debian developers and especially those involved 
with this release.
