Can't install debian 1.1


I tried to install debian 1.1 with Boot1440.bin from may 28, but there was
a problem:

I have a Pentium with Adaptec AHA2940 SCSI-controller and a Samsung 
PLS-31274S SCSI-harddisk.

Here is a part of the output of the boot process:

As the harddisk is detected, its motor stops spinning. He not even restarts 
spinning at a hard reset. I have to switch off the computer and then to 

I hope this is only a simple problem with my hardware-configuration, but I am
not very familiar with scsi:

The terminators are set correctly.
All ids are unique.
In the SCSI-select menu, 'Send Start Unit SCSI Command' is enabled for the 
On the harddisk all jumpers are on the default setting (excluding the 
termination-jumper and the jumpers for the id).

Thanks for helping me,
