Re: RS6000 / 43P Install Failing

For what it's worth..

I recently started tinkering with loading Debian on a 7043-140 myself.
In my opinion, the following site is an awesome reference:


I followed one of the posted walkthrough's fairly closely:

"Edmund R. MacKenty's SuSE 7.3 Installation walkthrough"

However, instead of loading SuSE 7.3, I loaded Debian 3.0r6.

I have not done much other than boot and login.
