problems installing

I'm trying to install debian for the first time.  I've attempted booting
up with the rescue disk and a debian cd, but both times the startup
sequence locks up at the same point.  
I get a line that says:

NCR53c406a: no available ports found

That's the point at which the startup crashes.  Someone at ndlug (notre
dame's lug) mentioned that it may be some kind of unsupported hardware
problem though he wasn't sure what exactly it was.  
I have a pentium II 300, 64 megs of ram, a quantum fireball 6.4G hard
drive, an older Toshiba DVD drive, an ATI all in wonder graphics card, and
an old ISA 3Com 509 ethernet card.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
