Debian Live cannot load kernel


I am trying to run a Debian-NP 0.1r2 Live CD which I was offered as a complimentary.

I type "morphix vga=normal" then it says

"uncompressing Linux ... Ok, booting the kernel"

And thats all. It stops there forever. What could be causing this?

You should be able to press F1, F2, etc... to get boot parameters. You probably need to disable acpi with noacpi or scsi with noscsi
