Re: Bug#2086: installation bugs/inadequacies
I'll throw in some comments of my own. :)

I'm also irritated by this. Also, we should have a rescue disk of some
sort that has fsck.

This has been reported several times. The de4x5 driver does not work
as a module without some parameters. There is no way to pass these
parameters from /etc/modules.
Please: The de4x5 driver should not be provided as a module.
Unless, of course, someone wants to fix the PCI probing so it works
as a module. Doing so is completely safe, but for some reason the
driver won't do it.
