I'm a quite newbie here, in Linux world, so sorry.
My problem is (In steps):
1. I've managed to get a running Debian Woody system with the "base-kernel".I've had a functioning samba server, to exchange with my roommate.A running xserver with KDE as manager.
2.To get my sound (AC97) working, I've started to compile a new kernel, but it never finished (gcc got a fatal signal 11), not any time.
3.Up next, after a few reboots, my xserver started to act weird: did not start at all, after the login manager prompt, it crashed (guess what-sig11!).
4.I couldn't manage to work it out, so, I've decided to boot up from the first Debian CD, and configure a new system (quite good-for practicing).And now what:it just stopped installing the base packages, saying something was corrupt in the CD.
5.Now, it doesn't boot up at all..
My harddisk now doesn't contain any running systems) nor from CD!!!!
Last step:Please help me!Is it a hardware problem?
