Package: installation-reports

Debian-installer-version: 2004-07-13  Image from:
uname -a: Linux geocentric 2.6.7-1-386 #1 Thu Jun 24 12:42:08 EDT 2004 i686
Date: 2004-07-13, 12:00pm CST
Method: I used the current sarge-i386-netinst.iso from the above location.
I used the "standard" install method using the Linux 2.6 Kernel.  This was a
machine that was behind a firewall on my company LAN with non-proxied access
to the internet.

Machine: IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221-1PU

Processor: Dual Intel Xeon 2.4 Ghz

Memory: 1.5 GB

Root Device: Root device was a Hardware RAID Array (Level 5), Adaptec 2120S
w/ 3x Seagate 73.4GB U320SCSI 68PIN 10K SEA-ST373307LW

Root Size/partition table: ...
File System: ext3
Mount point: /
Bootable flag: on
Size 146.7 GB

Output of lspci:
Couldn't find the location of the command via a boot menu in the
installer... :(

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


I was pleased to see my Broadcom NetXtreme 10/100/1000 integrated Ethernet
card was detected properly by the installer now.  Looks like the tg3 driver
issues were sorted out now?

The only problem I had was GRUB not installing properly to my RAID array.
As mentioned above, I have a Adaptec 2120S RAID Controller hooked up to 3x
Seagate 73.4 GB U320SCSI 68PIN 10K SEA-ST373307LW drives.  The drives are
configured into a single RAID5 Volume and detected by the installer as such.
However, grub fails to load with a "Fatal Error"
