I have tried to install "Debian Etch" on it, using a cdrom I
burnt from an ISO image fetched on the Debian website.
(It is not the first time I do that an usually it work).
The system booted properly on the CDROM but the
installation process "failed" to "recognize" the CD ROM
drive (CD/DVD:P1-HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N).
Now, the Asus laptop manages to "boot on the remote computer"...
(I don't know if it is the proper way to put it... !)
I run the first steps of the installation process:
1. Choose language
2. Choose country
3. Keymap to use
4. Configure the network
Primary network interface:
I select the entry corresponding to the Ethernet interface
it in the list and press "Enter".
eth0: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express G
There it fails with the following message:
5. Configuring the network with DHCP
Network autoconfiguration failed
Your network is probably not using the DHCP protocol.
Alternatively, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware
is not working properly.
I can see that my DHCP server has offered an IP address to the laptop.
(In "/var/log/messages" I have an IP offer for the MAC address that
corresponds to the laptop).
Can you help me please solve that problem?
Thanks in advance,
