It's not.

Unfortunately I don't think you're going to be able to install unless
you've got a hard drive on another interface, e.g., IDE. There is a
driver that will work with the 2940U2W but you either have to install
kernel 2.125 or kernel 2.0.35 with a patch from


in order to use your 2940U2W.

There are boot disks for SuSe and Redhat at that site but I haven't
seen anyone do the equivalent for Debian.
