I tried upgrading my SLug to Squeeze using Martin Michlmayr's

went OK (I have installed Debian a few times now). After reboot
the SLug goes through the

led, flashes a few times, the
HDD is accessed a few times and that it, nothing else.
In the past I had this problem with discrepancies between the
flashed data and the partitions
on the HDD, using UUIDS or labels or devices in FSTAB did not fit
to what had been flashed.

If I understand correctly, the bootable partition must be the
second one, other than that?
Here is my fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type>
<options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda2 / ext2 errors=remount-ro 0
#/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda3 /home ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda4 none swap sw 0 0
/boot stuff is all under / after I untarred the tarball.
Here is the ouput from fdisk:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 1 12 96358+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 * 13 523 4104607+ 83 Linux

/dev/sdc4 30391 30401 88357+ 82 Linux swap
Disk mounted on another box of course.
Thanks in advance
I got it to work now. I think the problem was the the partitions on
the HDD were
not in the correct order. I had corrected them with Fdisk (see the
but probably not written the changes to disk. Later on I saw them
out of order
again, so corrected them again, and even wrote them to disk, and it
Thanks to Martin M. for the tarball.
