Freezes on bootup - HELP!


I've done the install and ready to boot up for the first time. I get the nice start up screen with Tux up in the corner and all the start up checks scrolling by. However it freezes when it comes this the cs: IO port probe. Here are the last two lines where it freezes:

cs: IO port probe 0x0c00-0x0cff: clean
cs: IO port probe 0x0800-0x08ff:

This also happens when I use the boot floppy. Any thoughts?

During the setup I told it to use the default one... did not select one from the disk. So I guess that would be a yes, it's bare.i

Nope... same thing when using the bare.i kernel. This is getting frustrating... I've installed 5 times now... same thing. Anyone?

Note: this also happens with a boot floppy so there is no way for me to get to the base system in a "safe" mode... that is unless someone knows a way.

Thanks for all the help, BTW.

yeah... it's a Dell C800 laptop. 512M. 20G HDD. No PCMCIA cards are inserted.

I've been Googling for this issue but there's a lot to sift through. Thanks.

I found this:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-lapto.../msg00397.html

maybe you should study /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia

and maybe maybe (dont blame me!) insert

exclude port 0x0800-0x08ff at the end?

please this is slightly guesswork!
