Re: Can't boot live DVD Debian 6, KDE, 1GB


Your response makes no sense to me.  A live CD does not use a hard
drive, so why is it even looking for one, much less a slave?  

I have no problem with addressing the situation to a wider Debian
audience, but I already know how it will go -- contact the live cd
group.  If you think otherwise, then tell me what the appropriate group
is and I'll at least try.
