Debian Sarge on Acer laptop
Just a small correction of
my previous posting.....if you are not able to boot into your laptop
after fresh installation of Sarge, the problem could be from the
hotplug which is trying to load a non existing module.
So instead of uninstalling
hotplug to avoid this problem, please try to find which module is
causing this problem and add it in /etc/hotplug/blacklist file and you
should be able to boot. In my case the problem was because if
i810_audio and I blacklisted it and everything went fine. (Btw you
could use knoppix to boot into your laptop).
