Installation problem

I have a  pentium 200 with 2 IDE hard disks
2.0MB and 1.2 MB.
I have partitioned them already using FIPS
and FDISK.

I tried to install debian and got the following error
message while booting

PPA: unable to initialize controller at 0X378 , error 2

After this when I started partitioning the disk
with cfdisk through the root menu
I got the following message

Fatal error: Cannot seek on disk drive.
Enter to exit fdisk

I tried running cfdisk from the shell with the -c -h and -s
options but got the same problem.

Any help is welcome ..
