Bug#256374: Installation hangs on Compaq Presario 1220 while loading module 'ide-cd' during hardware detection for the CD-ROM drive (beta4, i386, linux26)

Hrm... strange. It could be because the installer first lacks the
necessary modules and then fails to restart cardmgr properly when the
modules are available. What if you choose detect network hardware a
second time without killing and restarting cardmgr? And, by the way,
do you have a Cardbus card or a 16-bit card?

Actually, the card should not be brought up by this init script. It
should be brought up by cardmgr or hotplug. This means that the
installer failed to recognise that the network interface was a PCMCIA
card and thus erroneously added an "auto eth0" line to

The problem here is probably that yenta_socket isn't the right
module. Could you try loading i82365 instead? The pcmcia-cs package
should have detected this but maybe something went wrong.

You could check the logs during the installation, i.e. "grep cardmgr
