Installation on ACER laptop
I am trying to install Linux on a ACER TRAVELMATE 2310.
I have tried SUSE 9.3 and Fedora Core 3 and I have problems related to HDD detection.
Fedora gives me asserts regarding the cylinder and header numbers. I can choose ignore - I have to do it many times - and the installation goes on.
SUSE doesn't see any HDD at all, so I can not set partitions. If I give "hda=xxxxx,16,63" parameter to the kernel, ( I took xxxxx number using information from fedora /proc/ide0... ) the installer sees my hdd as having 8GB instead of 40GB. I did not try to install with settings.
Did anybody had similar problems? Or should it be a hardware issue?
