Knoppix V3.3 had been worked in the same machine. So I believed Debian-Sarge also should successfully be installed.
Network HW is MELCO WLI-PCM-L11G(PCMCIA) with PCI board. Installer failed to detect them. Installation was done manually.
Keyboard layout was not correct at first. I am using JP106 keyboard, but XF86Config said "us". I corrected it "jp" afterward. So it works fine now.
Generally talking, Debian-sarge is nice in my old-PC. I didn't install anything that is too much for CPU.
The machine is still well for E-mail and WEB browzing. My SCSI card is AHA2930C. It won't work in recent Motherboard and also MS Windows later than 98.
I got back SCSI function by Debian Linux.
