I just got a very nice Dell 8300 Dimension (P-IV 3GHZ, 120 GB EIDE HD) with windows-XP preinstalled and would now like to get a usable OS installed on it (SuSE 9.0).
However, YaST2 is having problems recognizing the HD.
If I use the standard installation routine, it hangs at:
robing with STATUS(0x00) instead of ALTSTATUS(0x05)
If I use the safe installation routine, it hangs at:
hda:attached ide-disk driver
If I use manual settings and include hda=noprobe, it gets through the initial segment of the installation up to choice of partitions & software etc, but then says it has not found a hard disk.
I would very much appreciate any tips or comments!
