Ive just instaled sarge (kernel 2.4) on a acer 8103 and its okey.

This could maybe be fixed by using a 2.6.10 kernel.

Im getting kernel panic with this message.

I have the same issue trying to install debian with Netinstall. I read somewhere about 'acpi=off'. That wasn't succesfull. What would you recommend for bootoptions to give so I am at least able to upgrade the kernel, because ancient 2.4 seems to me to be the problem? Is there another way to do a Netinstall with the latest Kernel. Or do we have to wait for Sarge to be FINAL? I tries the latest (K)ubuntu and that installed perfectly. Don't want to use that one though ;-) I'd rather use Sarge.

Well a typical case of answering myself. Maybe this helps some of you.

When you boot from the Netinstall cd fill this in at the very very first screen

boot: linux26

It took me quite a while to find that out :-(
