Re: ### a problem with installing Deb 2.1
That is all very nice... thanks for the distro advertisements, but I already have a (what I hope is) an install CD, and I'd like to use the one I have if I can. When I got the book, it only came with one CD -- is that all I need?
Also, when I boot from the CD, one person said that the messages would tell me which device it is on. Where do I look for that at? The messages scroll by way too damn fast to read what they say -- if I knew just where to look that would help a lot.
Also, as I mentioned, when I get the list of devices to try, I"VE TRIED EVERY ONE ON THE LIST WITH NO SUCCESS -- I even tried the SCSI option tho it's an Atapi IDE drive!!!
If it sounds like I'm getting frustrated, I AM!!! I prefer constructive help, not advertisements, thank you. :-)
