I unsubscribed from these two lists four days back. 
I sent a mail to debian-cd-request@lists.debian.org with the word
"unsubscribe" in subject line. Received a mail for confirmation, which I
did. And the mails didnot stop. So I carried out the same process all over
again. No change. 
Exactly the same happened with debian-boot-request@lists.debian.org.

I mailed listmaster@lists.debian.org with this... and NO help.

Now I have decided to annoy the lists by this mail until someone
unsubscribes me off... either debian-xxx-request or listmaster. Only related
parties to reply please.

Hello dear install-team, 

I have a problem with my installation (Debian 3.0) and although I read all
documentation, I couldnt find the answer. 

You are my last chance ! 

The problem is the following:

In my servers (Siemens, Prymergy L200) there are two SCSI-controllers, one
a Symbios , the other is an Adaptec 2840.

When I want to start, the Symbios controller is been found, and the Adaptec 
not. But, on the connected at the Adaptec controllers are the diskdrives. 
Either kernel bf24, vanilla, compact, pci ore anything else will load the 
modules for the controllers at boot.

And that is , where the problem is: I cannot install the System, as there
no drives to be seen by the installation system.

Also it is not possible to load the required module manually. The system 
refuses to load the module.

Okay, what did I do ? I made the driverdisks as described in the howtos.
system refused to mount the floppy-drive (/dev/fd0)

Now, my suggested solution is, to create a install-kernel with 
Adaptec-controller built in.

Do you have another solution ? 

Maybe it is possible to create a rescuedisk with selfmade-kernel ???

Can you help me ?

If not, please transfer this mail to someone you know he can !

Thank you very much in advance !
