Re: Can't boot with boot disk & SMC Ultra Card
What I don't understand is that the current computer configuration works
fine in MSDOS, but if I attempt to install debian linux, it locks up right
after init'ing the eth0 driver. I get no problems installing Slackware. I
wanted to try debian because of all the good things I had heard about it.
I was installing release 6 of debian linux 0.93.
I don't know were to get "the 1.3.43 kernel."
I do mean decimal irq 10.

Don't you mean 10 in decimal, not 0x10?
A cursory look over the driver didn't yield an easy answer. Have you
tried the 1.3.43 kernel, just to see if that driver is any different?
