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


System has a 3Com 3C905C-tx card, which is well supported in Linux.

Initial boot from CD worked fine. When it reached the point of detecting 
network hardware, I received the error "Error running 'modprobe -v aic7xxx'. 
I continued from this point.

When it reached the configuration of the network, it got an error on DHCP 
configuration. No problem, I wanted to configure it manually anyway. I 
entered the ip address, etc. I then received the message:

"An error occurred and the network configuration process has  been aborted. 
You may retry it from the installation main menu." I tried to continue. When 
it reached the point of detecting hardware, it again received the message 
"Error while running 'modprobe aic7xxx'".

At this point, it was obvious that the installer could not set up this 
machine, and I aborted to process. Other distributions (specifically SuSE and 
Fedora) have had no problems with this machine, so it is obviously something 
Debian related. I *DID* try getting the Sarge installer (Current); it had the 
same problems.
Version: GnuPG v1.2.2 (GNU/Linux)

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.
