Debian Installer spash screen appears with "...Enter to boot:"
Press Enter and get:
Screen goes blank and flashing cursor appears in upper-right
corner of screen and just sits there. System is hung at this
point and I need to press Reset button.
Tried 'debian-installer/framebuffer=false' but this didn't help.
Also tried 'netcfg/disable_dhcp=true' with the above - no help.
Rebooted and pressed F1 and then F6 to read about special disk

and then get a CR/LF and the cursor flashes below the 'R' of
'Ready.' and just sits there. System is hung at this point.
There is no USB or PCMCIA on this system so I didn't bother
trying those related boot parameters. Didn't see any reference
to either the 7880 or NetRAID controllers on the F6 boot
This same system loads Woody with no problems.
