RE: Install on Toshiba Satellite 5005
FWIW, I had the same trouble with a Vaio, same Intel chipset I think....hmm.
Work around was to d/l a couple of the testing CD's, which can be found
here..pick your mirror. http://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/#testing
I'm sure there are better/easier ways to install a 2.4.x kernel shortly
after install or even with it, but this worked for me and I now have a
rescue CD. :-) Good to have when an upgrade from Win2K pro to XP pro decides
to boff the MBR .. ;-)
My best guess is that the 2.4.x kernels handle the shared irq's and Intel
chipset more gracefully. If all else fails you could try RH7.2 which ran
fine here, but I for one couldn't stand the maintenance of it. Just more
familiar and comfortable with dselect.
