The hard drive is a Fujitsu MHT2060AH. Find out what disc controller your laptop has. I don't known if recent versions of d-i include 'lspci'  Where you have a working network connection "wget it" and run: (lspci ; lspci -n ) | sort and send us the output. Also inform your hardware vendor that you want to run GNU/Linux on your laptop. > Are there any other kernel options that might work? I would have > tried a daily build, but the link seems down. And which link should be restored? Cheers Geert Stappers  Is "Use a live CD like Knoppix for `lspci`" still the best advice?
