RE: Installing onto HP Netserver 3000r
I'm booting directly from CD. I have searched google about Netservers, and
there certainly is some discussion that seems to centre around the Adaptec
RAID controller card (AIC-7880), but the search only reavealed questions..
Do you have a quick pointer to a download point for the boot-floppies? I'll
give them a whirl!

Are you using the 'compact' flavor of installation disks (or CD?).
See the install manual. I believe this will fix your problem. But I
also seem to recall some special problems with the HP Netserver
... did you do any google searching?
We would appreciate it if you would also test the woody version,
boot-floppies 3.0.13 or better (3.0.14 is building right now) so we
can make sure it works for the next Debian release.
