Re: Booting netinst from SCSI CDROM fails

I think if you configure a static IP address, the DHCP menu will stop
complaining. At least that's what I did when pump failed and then I
could continue. Alternatively, remove /sbin/pump before DHCP is
called, and it will use the other DHCP client and just work.
I haven't tried setting a static address (I forgot to write
down the DNServer address of my provider), but removing pump
did the trick.
Here is my list of problems by now:
- after booting the CD in my SCSI drive I have to reinsert it
in an USB drive, cause the aic7xxx driver has been dropped
from initrd due to size constraints. Joey told me that this
is work in progress.
- while the aic7xxx driver is performing a reset I have to
switch to console 2 to remove /sbin/pump to make dhcp work.
- I get a list of distros to select from, (stable, testing,
unstable), but selecting unstable I get an error message
about some missing package files.
When there is a new netinst image I will give it a try.
