Debian Lenny on the Asus 1005HA


Ok i would like to install Lenny on my 1005HA. Before i continue i have already read the deb wiki about the netbook http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/Model/1005HA.

I just don't get it. I downloaded the standard release (i386) here http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/da...i-arch/iso-cd/ because the wiki says to use a cd release because the netinst doesnt work with my netbook.

I use Unetbootin to put the cd on my usb stick and then boot the eee with it. I cant do the text installations, it freezes and says process 1032/34. So i have to use the graphical installer. It says it cannot find a CD rom to install things and ask if i want to use a removable media. When i say yes, it cannot find a removable media.

I don't know what to do. Please help me.

The link you provided is of the net-install, its NOT a complete install cd iso

Both the links take to net install image.

Download first cd from here and then install the required packages through apt-get

Debian doesnt recognize my netbooks ethernet or wifi...i cannot use apt get. Also the cd that linuxlover gave me doesnt work, it asks me to insert cd and doesn't recognize the usb. Is there a way to ONLY use a cd/dvd image to install Debian with a usb?

If your book allows usb boot then you can try out Ubuntu 9.04. Can use Unetbootin to make usb stick bootable.

Also post the output for

lspci -v. It will tell what card you.

Will this help me get Debian on the netbook? Because I already have Slackware on it.

You have atheros chips for both wired and wireless. Can you try and use Ubuntu live to see if helps?
Busy with work so will need some time looking for solution.

Ok sure. Ndiswrapper could just help. Just as you have a Debian live cd, you can have Ubuntu Live cd as well. It will directly run from the cd and there is no need to install it.
