I would like to install etch on a new PC whit netinstall (daily-build). I have the following system:
Intel 3.2 GHz
1 GB RAM
one 160 GB SATA HD
one 200 GB SATA HD
USB keyboard (no interface for PS/2 keyboard)
I tried booting the etch netinstall CD. All went fine until i had to choose the language. I can't choose a language, because the keyboard is not
reacting. For example the numlock led is not burning.
Now i made a reboot and started at the bootpromt with install24. The keyboard is now reacting normal. I can also choose a language. But i
have a problem whit setting up my onboard network card with DHCP and in the expert mode i have also problems identificatig the SATA HD with
the 2.4 kernel.
By the way, i downloaded the newest knoppix version with the 2.6 Kernel. The HW identification works here fine. (USB-keyboard OK,
Networkinterface with DHCP OK, SATA HD OK).
So i think there should be a way installing Debian (etch) with the 2.6 Kernel.
Is there at bootpromt an option for activating a usb keyboard?
With the Sarge netinstall i have the same problems.
