a problem

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me with a
small problem concerning the boot disk of Debian/Linux 
(+all other Linux versions).
Simply, version 2.0.29 boot disks crash on my Laptop
shortly after it probes for the PCI devices. 
It says unrecognized PCI device and then crashes,
saying "Unknown PCI device (1039:5107)."

Version 1.2.3 boot disk almost works but apparently
fails to recognize 3 PCI devices.  
It says:
Unknown PCI device.  PCI vendor id=1c.  PCI dev id=5107
-----------------------------------18   -----------9660
-----------------------------------119b -----------1221

but recognizes other devices (Hitachi_dk225A-21, CD-211E ATAPI,
ide0, ide1,  mcd=0x300,10 floppy drive fd0 1.44M,  FDC0 is a 
post-1991 82007, serial driver ver 4.11, PS/2 pointing dev.)

My laptop is a Zitech Notebook (TFT, Pentium 166MHz, 32MB) 
with a 3COM 589D card that doesn't seem to be recognized at all.

Not everything works on ver 1.2.3
(like the net, and I'm missing
most of the useful stuff anyway).

The proc/pci file says:

bus 0    dev 0     func 0 
    host bridge:  Silicon Integrated Systems 85C501 (rev 0)
bus 0    dev 1     func 0
    ISA bridge :  Silicon Integrated Systems 85C503 (rev 1)

	I would be most grateful if you had any suggestions/ideas...

	I would really like to boot the ver 2.0.30 CD anyway.

	Thank you.

	Martin Bees.
