As you can see form my post in the thread the only way I got debian working was to use LILO rather than GRUB and add pci=nomsi to the boot information...
let us know if you get your issue resolved..
I do not know if our issues are related, but I was able to get my system to boot, after removing my PCI NVidia 5200 graphics card
kinda a sour victory.
I am willing to try to debug this issue further, but have no idea _how_ to do such a thing. If I put the graphics card in, the system simply will not boot, and the diagnostic messages come too fast (and many) to properly report them.
