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

Machine hard locks after trying to detect hardware. I suspect the outdated
BIOS and buggy DMA support.
CD drive is a combo thing.

MDK 10 also hard locks when trying to access the CD-Rom drive.
RH 9 hard locked on this machine when trying to write a CD with DMA enabled.
No problem with the Knoppix rescue CD:
Linux Knoppix 2.4.20-xfs #1 SMP Mit Jan 29 18:47:59 CET 2003 i686 AMD
Duron(tm) processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

Will look into a BIOS upgrade and see if that is part of the problem.

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.
