Well, after some uttering of obscenities (mainly directed at the
never-to-sufficiently-damned Windows box !!) I got tftp and rarp
working on my Debian laptop and Voila !  We have the debian installer

Now comes the fun part - hardware detection. It tries to load the
qlogicisp SCSI driver and says it's having problems loading it, so it
can't see my two 73Gb FC drives.

wtf ?

Best regards,
