problem description:

When i try to install Debian 2.2, The kernel hangs when it's booting. 
It gives a lot of "normal" kernel-messages and it hangs after the message "IBM
MCA SCSI: No Microchannel-bus support present -> Aborting".
I couldnt even get into the installation menu :/
I verified if there was conflicting hardware on my computer, there was not. I
verified my bios settings, and i disabled Video BIOS Shadow, after that it
still hanged.
I have used Linux-Mandrake 7.0 & 7.1 before for 4 months without any problem
with both the installation and running itself.
I've asked on several linux channels on irc, if anybody ever happened this or
if everybody know how i could get it working, nobody knew. 
I heard a lot of good things about Debian and i wanted to try it. I hope i am
able to install it later :)
