|Update on the Dell|
A previous entry discusses the Ubuntu installer stalling on my new Dell Dimension e310. In that post I decided that it was the USB controller causing pain, but the plot has thickened...
Knoppix: has no problems booting on the machine.
Debian's Stable: the installer boots fine, but DHCP doesn't work and it cant find the SATA disk.
The current Debian Testing: the installer freezes just like the Ubuntu one.
So, perhaps it's time for a chroot install of Debian from Knoppix? Although qtparted doesn't work on Knoppix properly, so I might have to do the filesystem resizing by hand.
