Re: Possible Problem Booting Debian on New Dell

one of the guys on the Debian mailing list suggested that I respond to
the post on this mailing list and report my results.

The thread I had linked to in my earlier post suggested installing
Linux with the pci=noapci boot option. I read the help documentation
for the Debian installer and it just happened to use the "no pci"
option as its example of a boot option. (Perhaps that indicates this
is a common problem?)

In the help documentation the option was slightly different. I could
successfully install Debian Lenny when I used the "pci=off" boot

Basically this is a kernel problem, and probably a known one.

Seems to me that this post in one of the threads you linked to gives you
the possible workarounds:
