[Aubanel.MONNIER@esterel-technologies.com: Bug#231086: Could not get sarge installer to boot on a TOSHIBA TECRA 8200]



Greetings, 

I am going to try to help with installation reports and I have a question:

Should I attempt to get any more information than is needed to sort a bug
report into a certain package?  It seems that this is a bug in bootcd.
Is this ready to be reassigned?

Thanks,
-Todd

Comments/Problems:


At startup, I press F2, and have a menu to selct the boot device.
I type C for CDROM, the CD starts reading and the machine displays a 
simple
ISOLINUX 1.7.xx 2002-04-01
and stops here

Is it related to the eltorito thing mentioned at 
http://public.planetmirror.com/pub/debian-netinst/ieure/faq.html ?

I don't have a floppy device to boot from, nor usb key, so I am stuck
