Hi and welcome to LQ.

You are probably better off installing a newer version of Debian. The latest version is Debian 4.0, codenamed Etch.

welcome to LQ.....

Please do not use the huge font--it will not get a quicker response

Why the poll?

Please give a SHORT description of the configuration:
How many hard drives and what size?
Partition setup for both Windows and Linux.
What was installed first?

Without regard to all the log details, what happens when you boot Linux?---ie do you get a blank screen?

When you say "Debian R2" do you mean Debian 4 R2?

Finally, don't expect people to send you private e-mail with help. That is not how a forum like this operates.

if your refering to debian 2,either hamm slink or potato...then i would consider downloading the latest distro, as you may find that the later distro has more chnce of supporting your hardware...
if you are refering to debian 4.0 r2 then you may have a problem, or a corrupt iso, in which case i suggest downloading again or trying another version of debian...if no success then try another distro of linux, as some distro's wont load on some pc's(even tho i have never had a problem with debian before, usually operator error with that distro)..
