Kayak UW mounts dual processor motherboard (in my case I have only one) with
built-it Adaptec AIC-7880 SCSI controller (16 bit, Ultra Wide). System has 2
SCSI discs 9Gb each, no IDE discs and one ATAPI cd-rom reader.

Problem seems to be SCSI controller support: I trieded all boot images, and
most of the SCSI-related parameters with no luck. It seems to be a kernel
regression, support for SCSI controller is broken. Note: if I use Woody 3.0
r3, and boot from the second distro disc typing "linux" the system will find
the controller and the installation will carry on. Note2: if I detach the
SCSI cable from the motherboard (therefore cutting access to diks) then
system boot sequence works (but then, of course, no disks are found...)

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
