That is not my motherboard, my motherboard is a GA-965P-DS3. Kernel
2.6.18rc4 added support for my IDE controller, making it possible to
see my cd-rom drive. I had planned on using a Debian Etch beta 3
installer, which uses a 2.6 kernel, but it is pre-2.6.18rc4, so it
cannot see my cd-rom drive. The current Knoppix disc uses a 2.6.17
kernel, and will not boot because it cannot detect my CD.
I hadn't though of it yet, but all I need is a way to install Debian
without using a CD. Once installed, I can update my kernel to add
support for my IDE controller. I have looked into installing from a
USB stick, which seems to be the answer.
Here are some links:
Another solution I've found is to get a Gentoo LiveCD that uses
2.6.18rc4, which I would have to create myself, and install Debian
with debootstrap. But that is entirely too much trouble, so I'm hoping
the USB stick idea works.
