Cant install debian sarge on hp pavilion


hello there can anybody help me?
i've got a brand new hp notebook and i'm having problems installing debian on it: i booted from cd, did the configurations/installation and when it says "now were ready for starting debaian the first time....." the notebook reboots, grub start, i press linux-2.8.9 (i think!) it loads a couple of things and halts on line:
ip1394 eth1 IEEE-1394 IPv4 over 1394 Ethernet fw-host0

eth1 i suppose is something with my firewire port but i dont know where to switch it off during instllation, AND since i dont get into any shell i cant configure it etc... can anybody tell me what possibilities there are to fix this problem?
thank u in advanced

Just curious!
How often do you use the firewire? I mean your divice "IEEE-1394".
You could disable it in BIOS.
Sarge is still testing distro, it has some issues with hardware

Try asking on debian forums of maybe direct questions for "darkleaf" or "leonscape"
These members are Debian "Wolves"
