Hi Carlo,

Just to let you know that it is possible to install Debian 5.0 on ZX6000
- - I had a very painless installation using a version written to a DVD. I
had upgraded to the latest firmware available for the ZX6000. The
installation was via the VGA card installed which is a ATI 7500 PCI.

If you need me to check any specific, supply log files or such that
might help I'd be happy to do so.

Oh, and once you get it working it runs like a dream ;)

Regards, Mark.
