    Hard Time Installing Woody With Boot Disk
    Contributed by Anonymous on Monday, October 29 @ 07:14:59 GMT

    I am not new to the Linux world, but new to Debian. I grabbed a copy of the boot disks for Woody (UDMA100-ext3) since I own a UDMA 100 controller. At first the copy from Debian Site caused me to get errors like "Cant find /target..." when it was installing the base system. Did a search on Google, and found this :
    It fixed my old problem, but when I get to the end, where it asks me to load lilo, it wont load lilo to a boot disk, or my partition (/boot).

    boot the system with a boot disk (ie the rescue disk), then install lilo or grub with apt-get

    Anybody know of ppc cd's of woody? There seems to be only stable cd-images available on debian.

    I found that modifing my boot params to install, then compliling a kernel with ATA100 support worked for me.

    At the linux: prompt, try:

    ide2=0x9400, 0x9002 ide3=0x8800, 0x8402

    You will have to add these to lilo.conf and run lilo to avoid having to do this at every boot until you get your kernel native ATA100.
