Re: Debian doesn't install on IBM Tink Pad R52



Hi,

Probably what you have is a SATA dvd recorder, thats why it get not
recognized by Debian Etch.

You can install either Etch or Sarge provided you use the 2.4 series
kernel.

If you want 2.6 kernel for Sarge you'll have to build your own kernel or
get a precompiled kernel image (it must be greater than 2.6.8).
 
Or you can  install  Etch with 2.4 kernel (just do a base install), then
manually install 2.6 kernel image. To make the dvd recorder work have a
look here:

may be it will help solve your problem
