Hmm... seems like we're each battling a different problem... or maybe its 
just me :)

im trying to figure out how to get debian on a stock 1650 with no RAID. 
this is my "toy" box, the other 4 on the shelf do have the raid card in 
them (thats my next task...)

My issue is that the e1000 drivers arent in the deb boot disks because they 
seem not to have been GPL'd... consequently i cant do a net isntall. Right 
now im playing with trying to add it to the disks and sucking it up and 
downloading a full install cd at the same time... lets see what gets done 
first :)

if anyone has any tips they would be appreciated...
