Bug#294708: Installation on Dell PowerEdge 740

Package: installation-reports

uname -a: Linux (none) 2.6.8-2-i386 #1 Mon Jan 24 03:01:58 EST 2005 i686 unknown
Date: 2005-02-11 10:00:00
Method: Booted from the sarge-i386-businesscard.iso

Machine: Dell PowerEdge 750
Processor: Celeron 2.4 GHz
Memory: 1 GB
Root Device: SATA
Root Size/partition table: 
Output of lspci and lspci -n:

Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]

Reboot:                 [ ]


If the installer is started with linux26 it fails to detect the cd-rom
drive (a TEAC CD 224-E). This step works if I use the default 2.4
kernel. With 2.4 I can see it even as "cat /proc/ide/ide0/hda/model".
This returns the correct desription of the drive.

Best Regards,
