That message is a result of some other error, typically because it was
unable to mount the root filesystem. This in turn could arise because
the kernel can't find your CD drive - note that the kernel itself is
read in using BIOS calls.

We need more of the preceding messages.

Hello John

i tried again with rescbf24 vga=791 apm=on root=/dev/hda1
it went trough up to the login prompt,. but i didn't even came so far to create teh root user. i' m still up to the install debian. i came so far to make the system bootable. I tried different install parameters, but only bf24 vga=791 apm=on worked, but ever time i like to make my laptop bootable it come to that the screen was black and startet to illuminating via different colors to white. input was not possible just reboot.

can you see where there is a possibilty to install debian at all?
