Lenny won't install on an old Pentium that used to run Etch. Try 2



I sent this email in two parts. It seems that only the second part got
through. So, here are both parts combined into one email.

I have a (old) Pentium 75 that used to run Etch. I have been trying to
install Lenny on it without success. The installation stops at the 6%
point of the "Installation of Base System" step. Various packages are
being retrieved at that point. At different times, the installation has
stopped while it was getting dpkg, coreutils, bdsutils, and libselinux1.

When the installation stalls, I can't get CTRL-ALT-F4 to open another
console, so I can't tell exactly what was going on.

I have tried both the Lenny debian-500-i386-CD-1.iso and the
debian-500-i386-netinst.iso. Neither works. The disks have been used to
install Lenny on other machines, so I know that they are not the
problem.

Any ideas to diagnose what is going on or to get the installation to
complete would be appreciated. The output of lshw (from the System
Rescue CD) is below.

I use an ATA Force card so that the machine can recognize the "large"
hard drive and boot from the CD reader using an SBM card. I doubt that
these are the problem since Etch installed okay, but heck, who knows.

Thank you.
