Why does my car not start? Could be anything really.. without any details!
Give us more details, like hardware specs, laptop make and model, etc? We're not psychic and can't assume why something doesn't work? I could only wish then we'd have emailed you before you even asked the problem here to tell you how to fix it then.. huh?
Try switching virtual consoles with Alt + the function keys. I had a similar problem installing on a Winbook X1 laptop. On 3 or 4 there were some /dev/hdc (my cd-rom drive) errors - I got around it by installing over HTTP from a mirror - IIRC, its "linux askmethod". (I needed "nofb" as well for my Sis video chipset). It was kind of funny - the CD-Rs passed the test program and I had successfully installed Debian Stable and Windows 2000 Pro with the same drive.
Ah! I just tried "alt1" at the boot prompt, which loads the 2.2 kernel, and it looks like it might install... getting a lot further anyway. It has complained about not being able to support PCMCIA under a 2.2 kernel but that shouldn't be a problem just yet. Now (thinking aloud) what will happen when I try to upgrade the kernel. How do you do it anyway?
