Here is what I have figured out so far (i think).
The system will "boot" from the CD-Drive but when the kernel takes over
it doesn't have the driver for this CD-Drive. I have used knoppix, etch
liveCD and network install cds. I then downloaded the first testing cd
and the kernel found the cd player. But then it couldn't find the
network card. I can tell with ubuntu that the driver is e1000-ich9.
I'm not sure how to tell what driver ubuntu is using for the cd-drive.
I guess Dell adds these drivers to the Ubuntu dist. because they aren't
on the CD that they sent. I sure hope they are on the restore partion .

I have just received a Dell Inspiron 530N pre-installed with Ubuntu. I
am now trying to figure out how to install debian on it. When I try to
boot my Debian LiveCD (20070716-07:09) I am getting an error message
similar to :
*"can't access tty; job control turned off"
*does anyone have a clue what this means?
It means you can't hit ctrl+z to put a job in the background.
It's a very minor error message.
Another person suggested that if you want to install Debian you can
use a Debian install CD. That sounds like a good idea to me too.
I guess I am just stuck on the bleeding edge of technology.
(ubuntu is looking better and better)
Thanks for everyones help and comments!!!!!!!!!
