In one of my trials, I made sure to install the same kernel as reported by 'uname' during the installation.
This would not boot.

With the RAID add-on card removed I installed the (debian) kernel 2.6.21.
Same behaviour.

Is there a way to know where the kernel hangs, since there is this single dot that is printed before the freeze?

[Easy, as I can hit "reply" now.]
