Re: Debian Boot Problem

For now, please boot your system with the command:

	linux reserve=0x340
	linux cm206=0x350

Where "0x350" is any unused address on your system. I'll have to remove
this from the next kernel. I wanted to see if more than one person hit
this problem, or if it was simply someone with odd hardware.

I'm really bummed by having to exclude from the generic kernel drivers that
don't auto-probe well enough to reject the wrong device (the cm206), and
drivers that hang forever if the device isn't there (some NCR SCSI
controller), and drivers that take forever to auto-probe (the SoundBlaster
CD driver). I'd prefer not to start a new career nudging people on the
linux-kernel list to fix this stuff, but I guess I have little choice.
