Trying the default kernel, it hangs fairly soon. First it sticks a long time at ide_detect, then it hangs terminally at sd_mod.

Using linux26, installation proceeds well at first. However during the apt configuration (after fixing the known cdrom mountpoint problem) there are problems adding additional sources. No matter if I select ftp or http and no matter what mirror, it hangs here:

	0% [Waiting for headers]

Network connection is fine (checked with other terminal, can ping mirrors), and ftp login works too.

Stuck here, please help!
