First time debian install
Dear debian boot;
I have tried to install the new 3.1r0a debian on my system. A Dell
Dimension 9100, Pentium 4, with one SATA drive (80GB) and an ethernet
controller integrated into the mother board using the Intel PRO/100 VE.
and Win XP.
I purchased two DVD install disks from 010101.biz.
During installation the ethernet contoller is not found and "no
partitionable media was found"
I plan to install a regular ethernet card in one of the PCI slots to get
the ethernet recognized.
I searched Dell support and they mentioned changing the bios from RAID
Autodetect/AHCI to RAID Autodetech/ATA. I did this and got the same
message that "no partitionable media was found". I tried using the
regular install and the linux26 option with the same message.
If this issue has alread been addresses could someone please point me to
that disussion. I would appreciate any help.
