I just tried 2.6 on ubuntu, and it doesn't take that. I'm gonna burn
another sarge disk right now and try it.
You might try booting Debian (and maybe Unbuntu as well; I don't know)
with the kernel cmd line "bf26" to use the 2.6 series kernel. If your
problem lies solely in installation, then this may work around it.
(Of course, you'll also need to use 2.6 afterwards).
