Hi,
  This is an old machine I know and I am not rebuilding kernels etc.  I was hoping Debian would work out of the box from CD, and am now two days in.  I used the boot command:

linux ide2=0x180,0x386

and can successfully install the basic system.  However, when I reboot the system the CD-ROM is nolonger available.  I have tried umount/mounting it to no avail with the message 'not a block device.'  The fstab file looks fine.

A message that might be relevant is:
 hdc: TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-7002Bc, ATAPI CDROM Drive
 hdd: no response (stats=0xa1)
 Uniform CD-ROM driver Revison 3.11
ide_cs:hdc Vcc=5.0,Vpp=0.0

Any help would be appreciated; I have seen the same problem in mailing lists for other models but noone seems to get a response.

Next machine will be linux compatable from the start  (or I will have to learn to read Japanese).

Peter.

I'm closing all bug reports filed on the boot-floppies since this
codebase has reached its end of life. boot-floppies is only in Debian
oldstable now (and temporarily in unstable because of bug #224469).

The new installer for sarge and beyond is of course, the
debian-installer. It solves a great many issues present in the
boot-floppies.

If you believe that your boot-floppies bug is still present in
debian-installer somehow, then please reopen the bug report and reassign
it there, or perhaps better, file a new bug report.
