URGENT help with Debian
I am trying to install Debian on my commputer running windows 98. I have partition the hard drive into two partitions before begging, using fips. Then, I ran the debian installer through the cd-rom, and it worked fine, until the base systemm install part came about.
I got this error message:
Failed to install the base system
The base system installation into /target/ failed.
Check /var/log/messages or see virtual console 3 for the details.
Then I tried again, and got this:
Couldn't download gzip.
What went wrong? I hadd re-partiton the second partition into annther two partitions, and set one to /, and the other to swap (I forget what it is called, but it is in the manuel) The table of partitions looked like this:
#1 primary 7.4 gb fat32 this held windows
#2 primary 5.2 gb ext2 / this was the boot one
#3 primary 1.1 gb swap this was the sawp one
I am connected to the internet via a wirless usb adapter.
