I had a similar problem on my Dell laptop.. had to install ipw2200.

I guess that you need a newer kernel that supports your NIC. It would
help if you could paste the output of "lspci -knn" from your Ubuntu
installation or from within a live cd like grml. You could also check
the hardware support situation at:

http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/

Debian provides stable installers with newer kernels at:

http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/

which you might want to use in order to solve your problem. I would
strongly discourage installing testing just because your NIC is not
supported by Lenny's kernel.

That's great ! Is this officially part of debian ? I never came across
that link before, that would have been much less pain...

Thanks !

Well, it is not really officially supported, but Kenshi Muto is a DD and
has provided the images for quite some time.

I had a similar problem with my HP Mini 110. The NIC driver, although
FOSS, was not in the Lenny kernel. The wireless driver is Broadcom,
which relies on a binary blob. So, I needed to use a recent build of the
Squeeze installer, that had a kernel with the NIC driver. I was then
able to do a successful netinst, after which I could get everything else
setup.

Thanks Wolodja for pointing to this site.* The installer from Kenshi Muto worked for me. Now the final test it to make it work with VMware Server.

For those following along at home, I recently had a similar
issue with drivers, but solved it differently -- the 2.6.32
kernel (same version number as Ubuntu 10.04) is in lenny-backports.

Of course, if the issue is missing SATA or network drivers
messing up your install, the backport kernel is not as useful, but
still, it's an option.

There was some talk at the time of the lenny release that a
"lennynhalf" kernel release might be provided, similar to what
was done for "etchnhalf", but I haven't heard anything recently
about that.

IIRC it was decided that the squeeze installer + backports kernel fills
that gap. You can search through the archives of debian-release.

Wonderful. I would suggest to replace the kernel you have now by one
from http://www.backports.org as you will receive kernel updates then.

kind regards

so if I wanted to upgrade my kernel, and I am using backports, I could do
this:

# aptitude -t lenny-backports install linux-image-2.6-686

and it would install the package 2.6.32+27~bpo50+1 ?
