Re: ### a problem with installing Deb 2.1
If messages are scrolling down too fast, you can wait till it stops and then
scroll up by pressing shift and the cursor-up key. Do you know at which
controller and position your cdrom is connected? If it's primary master,
it's /dev/hda, primary sl=dev/hdb, sec. ma=/dev/hdc, sec. sl=/dev/hdd. If
it's connected to a promise udma controller add-on card or similar, it maybe
won't work for install! It has to be connected at the mainbrd controllers
(if your mainbord has some).
P.S.: I've got many friends actually frustrated by the win2000 installation.
So, don't give up.
