system hangs after network setup . . . I enter the DNS (last step), tab to OK, press enter, then blue screen with one black (blank) line on the bottom and a white mouse curser somewhere . . . no response, dead in the water . . . I tried skipping this step, but then the reboot gives me: eth0 unknown device . . . . . I should point out that the 2 smc cards are recognized by the boot from the rescue disk, and are ascribed the appropriate tulip drivers . . . I am also on a cable modem connected to eth0 (works fine with RedHat :-) ) . . . not that I like RedHat; why do you think I'm trying to install debian . . . but I'm dead in the water . . . . .
also, when I attempt to reboot using root=/hda1 (or whatever, it's not on my screen right now), I get a message about reading past the end of the device . . . do I need to use a "linear" or "lba" argument somewhere?

Thanks Much,
