    Debian GNU/Linux testing "Sarge" - Official Snapshot
    i386 Binary-1 (2004-06-19), obtained via jigdo from
uname -a: n/a
Date: 2004-06-21 06:00:00 +0000
Method: installation from CD-ROM (with bootable Debian CD)

Machine: New custom built PC, 2 x 160GB on IDE, 2 x DVD on IDE
Processor: AMD Athlon XP 2000+ Thorton
Memory: 1024MB Infineon DIMM DDR333
Root Device: 3rd Partition on 2nd disk
Root Size/partition table:
    Root size is 18GB, one filesystem for everything.

    Both disks have the same partition layout: 3 x 18GB primary,
    and a (Windows) extended partition with 3 x 32GB + 1 x 2GB
    logical.  Windows does not handle Linux extended partitions,
    but Linux seems to be content with Windows ones.

Output of lspci: n/a

Hard disk partitions had already been created with Windows XP.
Debian installation CD #1 booted without trouble into the
installer menu.  However, I could not assign the root filesystem
where I wanted it, though both disks and their partitions were
recognized.  But whenever I selected a partition of disk 2
(slave on first IDE bus) for editing, the partitioning submenu
invariably presented the corresponding partition on disk 1.
Editing results would consequently show up on the wrong drive.
Cautiosly I cancelled everything.

I consider this a software problem since a fairly recent one-CD
Knoppix had no trouble creating ext3 filesystems wherever I wanted.
Even after that I found no way of convincing the Debian installer
to install onto the slave disk.  Both disks are Seagate ST3160021A.
