The installation using the kernel 2.4 not works hangs
when detecting the CD (when loading the kernel module

With the kernel 2.6 all works fine but i have a total
inactivity of the IDE LED (during and after the

I mean these two problems concerns the Linux Kernel
particular sata_sil or something about APIC). I have
the same problems trying a new 2.6.11 kernel.

The kernel installed is a generic 386 kernel, not
optimized for k7 cpu. ( I have installed the package
kernel-image-2.6.8-2-386 ).

I have had to configure the ADSL connection manually
during the installation (opening another shell) using
the tool pppoeconf (in order to configure apt during
the installation).

The version of pppoeconf in the live cd creates the
obsolete link /etc/boot/ppp_on_boot: I have had to
remove it manually and edit the file

Thanks for the best Linux distro :)
