Have you tried booting with a simple:
'linux26' or 'linux' to boot?

Hi KneeLess,

Tks for your response.

Now I got my problem fixed. The first sarge-i386-netinst.iso download from

http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

having bug.

I download another sarge-i386-netinst.iso from
http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimag...i386/20040915/

It worked having the base Debian installed.

Now another problem in front of me is connecting Debian ftp server. Because my ISP only assign dynamic IP address. I left IP address empty on setting network during installation.

Please advise how to reconfig the network. TIA

B.R.

You should install "dhcp-client":
Code:
apt-get install dhcp-client
to get a dynamically assigned IP address.

Hi m_yates,

Tks for your advice.

My problem is connection to Debian server not yet established. I can't use "apt-get install". I have all CDs in hand.

I don't mind to make another installation. What shall I do when requesting to add IP address if dynamic IP?

TIA

B.R.

You can either set up apt to install from the CDs and then "apt-get" the dhcp-client package, or you can download the dhcp-client package from this page: http://packages.debian.org/testing/net/dhcp-client and install it with:
Code:
dpkg -i dhcp-client*.deb
To set up DHCP, you want the /etc/network/interfaces file to have an entry like:
Quote:
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
That will automatically start eth0 with dhcp. It is funny though, the installer should try to set up DHCP automatically.

They are already there and DHCP also installed.

Now I got broadband connected by editing both /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider and /etc/ppp/pap-secret. Ping yahoo.com, debian.org, etc were found working.

Also I have the base Debian installed but starting 'init 2' only.

Kindly advise how to proceed further to complete the installation of Debian.

TIA.

Beside in my case. During installation how to overcome the problem of leaving 'IP address' empty.

Broadband connection - via router
login and password required.

Tks

B.R.

You can run "base-config" as root to finish seting things up.

Yes I tried before without success because

1) The item for selecting packages for installation did not work. Highlight and <ENTER> only popup a running page saying package selection page not available

2) can't connect Debian server.
It is quite strange on this box.

If starting with
# pon dsl-providers

to connect broadband I was only allowed to ping IP address. Ping URL did not work

If starting connection with
# pon

I can ping both IP address and URL. It was discovered by me later on another Debian 3.0 box which did not accept

# pon dsl-providers

Only
# pon


I added "pon" on /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot

cat /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot
....
pon
# exec pppd call dsl-provider

Now the Debian box can't boot up hanging on
......
Starting pppd-

Is there any way to remove "pon" from /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot and uncomment "exec pppd call dsl-provider"

TIA

B.R.
