Overall install: [?] What is it mean? erase old data in partation? I format it.
1. I use boot from CDROM (squeeze_netinst_RC1), IT dead in mainboard LOGO(Intel MB)
,and I find the CD is OK(bootable in other PC).
My win XP driver and PPPOE fauit(It be OK for a long time),HW is a old 3COM netcard.
After change a realtek 8139D netcard, the boot is OK.
I don't know if install_rc1 cause 3COM netcard bad ?It's not important,
it's too old and only one, I have some RL8139D netcard .
(If in this netcard bad situation, can installer jump it and pop a message say:
"Not find netcard (NIC) in your system . " ?
2. I'm in china , many people use ADSL in home. And I use graph install (shell Install
I think no problem)
Install try to find DHCP , and after fault, I input 192.168.x.x something.
Maybe a ADSL option in installer(squeeze) is better to me?
1. Local network with DHCP (Had a gateway to internet)
2. ADSL use pppoe (You know your username and password)
This may faster to beginer.
3. After I use expert mode to install pppoe, I find pppoeconf is in NETINST cdrom.
But if I choise a sources mirror in GRAPHINSTALL mode, I lost "deb cdrom" in sources.list.
Can you add this for me?
NETINST is default in sources.list (deb cdrom xxxxxxxxxx)
After user choise sources mirror, display a message :
You must use "apt-get update" before "apt-get install anything"
When the squeeze is ok, if user (beginer) use :
"apt-get install xxxxxx" and get nothing , give this message:
Is the software in the list? Maybe use "apt-get update" first.
4. In console, the text is too small, oh my eyes....
In etch & lenny It's OK (Other PCs), maybe add a item in grub2 (big text)?
I should add vga=7xx something? I'll test afterwork...
THANK all of you .
