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).
bf26 does not work as a boot command line command on either ubuntu or
sarge. Did you mean something else?
