which drive you are having, I mean it is IDE or SATA.
if it is SATA checkout for the SATA Native Support in your BIOS.

I don't see anyone posting issues installing to that laptop..

You said Debian 5 Testing.. Debian 5 (Lenny) is Stable, not testing,
what version are you trying to install ?
What install media are you using ? (businesscard, Netinstall, CD1, DVD1) ?
