Installing debain 3.0 r2 on my old amd k6-2 compaq.

Primary Master 16gb western digital
Primary SLave 10gb western digital
Secondary Master removable HD slot (empty)
Secondary Slave CD-ROM



Did the installation and got to installing BOS, and recieved some debootstrap error (returned a value of 1)
