Re: Dell Xpi 90 T laptop

I recently had this problem with a Toshiba 3015CT.  I needed a zImage
kernel instead of the default bzImage kernel on the standard boot disks. 

There's floppy images called "Tecra" images (named after the Toshiba
laptops which seem to exhibit this problem the most) which you might try
to boot from.  That worked for me.

Also, remember there's a Debian-Laptop list (someone else pointed this out
to me when I was having trouble) and if you'd be so kind as to detail your
laptop type, perhaps someone there could help.
