Package: cdrom
Version: 3.0 r0


I have 3.0 r0 "Woody" - the comlete 7 CD set, because I wanted to switch
from RedHat 9.0 to Debian.

I wanted to install a kernel 2.4.* system.

The symptoms are (when using the LG CD drive):

When I boot from CD1 :-

if I choose bf24, the script hangs after USB detection, and I just get
a grey screen on which I can type.

if I choose the default, the installation progresses fine, but I don't
get an option to install from the CD's, only from network, floppy,

When I boot from CD5 :-

it is not detected as a bootable CD ?

The full machine spec is included below - and I am running RedHat 9.0
on it now - so I know Linux does work (very well) with all the hardware,
with a 2.4 kernel.

Until I can install Debian without problems, I'll be a RedHat user.

Debian 3.0 is now obsolete, so I'm closing this bug report.

The good news is that the installer changed dramatically for Debian 3.1.
Please try installing Debian 3.1 if you're still interested (3 years later!).
If it doesn't work, you can file a bug report against 'installation-reports'.

Bush admitted to violating FISA and said he was proud of it.
So why isn't he in prison yet?...
