I'm trying to install the new Debian 3.0 distro, and until tonight I was
having some problems. Two different installation methods I tried (net-install
via the "compact" floppies, and one of the many base-install-on-a-mini-iso
cd's) kept coming up with the same sequence of errors:
1) No drivers are loaded for IDE controller or NIC, so no hard drive
or network available;
2) Attempted load of modules from modules floppy results in error
"Unable to mount floppy; can't continue".
I did a little research on google, got a few hits with these problems,
downloaded a all-floppies-on-a-cd ISO, and it worked. Cool!
The only problem is... I don't know what went wrong. I *hate* not knowing...!
Has anyone else been through this already and figured out what was wrong? I'd
like to know, but with 3 classes and a job search, I don't really have time
to figure it out right now.
