CD-ROM IRQ Timeout



Deal All,

I am installing Debian 1.1 from the Infomagic Sept 96 Developers Resource. 
My platform is a  Compaq Deskpro 2000 5100.

I can read the CD-ROM fine under DOS and copy and untar
gcc

However after booting debian and when trying to install packages I get
lots of

'hdb irq timeout : status = 0x58
hdb ATAPI reset complete'

It still seems to be able to install some/all? packages, but I don't know 
how reliable it is and it does take a long time.

Has any one seen this before please?

The information from the compaq diag package is below in case that helps

Thanks

Regards,
Alec
