Thanks to Alex Dawson and Karsten Merker for their tips. I also found
useful info at http://jobe.ca/?a=indy
In fact, I have two Indys. The first one's video card is reported as
"Indy 24-bit". On this one, the woody install went flawlessly,
working exactly as decribed in the howto.
The second Indy's video card is "GR3-X2". This is the one that
produced the error above. I assume the video card is the culprit.
If I understand correctly, I could in principle boot that Indy in
serial console mode and install Debian on it. However, I imagine that
XFree86 would not work on it because the video card is not supported.
Does that sound right?
