I tried to do a Debian 2.1 install from CD on a system that has successfully
run Caldera and RH6.0 in the past. The install program didn't present one
of the hard drives as being available for partitioning. The install program
also couldn't see a CD drive.
Both the unseen hard drive and the unseen CD are on a Promise Ultra33 IDE
controller. The hard drive that the install program found works from a
integrated IDE controller on the motherboard. The system is an old IBM
The drive successfully seen by the install program is called /dev/hda. The
drive that the install program couldn't see is called /dev/hde. While
booting off the install floppy, /dev/hde was listed on the console.
No one on the Debian IRC channel could offer help, so I tried a RH6.1
install using Redhat's install program. There were no problems with
partitioning the hard drive. The install was done from CD. Both CD and
/dev/hde are working well under RH6.1.
Version: Debian 2.1.
