The second machine presumably has 4 GB or more memory, so the '686'
kernel is not suitable. There should be a '686-bigmem' kernel on the
first DVD, but there isn't. This is bug #622622
You can install 'linux-image-2.6-686-bigmem' using the network and
then remove the 'linux-image-2.6-amd64' and 'linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64'

Use the 'reportbug' command to report a bug on whichever package seems
to be at fault.
