    I tried to start the Feisty Fawn live System. Short after the boot starts, the system tries several time to acces /dev/fd0 (my floppy). After approx. 10-15 tries the system gives up and the busybox prompt is presented.

    My PC is a Pentium 4 (Gigabyte 845PE motherboard) with 2 HDs (ATA) and a CD Burned as well as a DVD burner. On /dev/hda I have an installed Suse system (8.2) which I would like to overwrite with the Ubuntu system on /dev/hdb a Debian resides, which is my current working system. The grafics card is a Matrox G550 card (see the lspci print below).

    I tried to boot with noapic, nolapic pci=noacpi options. Also I tried to remove the floppy from the BIOS settings. In the later case no floppy access was recognized, but the error is still there.

    I hope, someone can help !

    Thank you for the quick response.
    In fact it seems that the problem is not yet solved ?
    I will try the modprobe piix stuff and come back to you.

    The modprobe piix stuff worked.
    Maybe today I will try an installation.

    Thanks a lot.
