Package: boot-floppies
Version: potato (stable)

flavor: dont know, just downloaded the standard floppy set
architecture:  i386
model: self-built. amd athlon xp 1700+, elitegroup k7s5a motherboard
memory: 384 mb pc133 sdram
scsi: none
cd-rom: 2x atapi cdrom (samsung dvd player and philips writer)
network card: safeway 10/100 pci
pcmcia: none

im having some problems re-installing debian. i just upgraded my hardware
from an athlon 1000 mhz to the athlon xp 1700+, put in a new motherboard,
more memory and a bigger and fast hard disk.
partitions:
/dev/hda1 linux ext2 4 GB
/dev/hda2 windows xp vfat 35 GB
/dev/hda3 linux swap 512 MB

i already installed windows xp, and now i want to install debian (i had this
config before the hardware upgrade and it was all working fine).

insert the rescue floppy, press enter at the welcome screen and the the
kernel start loading. it hangs after the message 'loaded md driver version
....', my computer hangs and it doesn't do anything anymore (not even
ctrl-alt-del). so power off and on again is the only solution.

do you have any idea what could be wrong? too much memory? the ata-100
drive?

Possibly CD#4 if you have the right set.  

I am closing this bug because (a) it's fixed by using the right
"flavor" to install from and (b) it's a kernel issue not a
boot-floppies issue anyhow.

Christiaan, let us know if you still have this problem, esp. from the
new Woody disks now in testing, and we can reopen the bug.
