I've been trying to get linux operating on a toshiba satellite 1550 cds. I've tried vl 5.9 but it doesn't seem to recognise the hard drives. I installed vl 5.8, which went find except it locks up when inserting a xircom 10/100 16-bit card. After various experiments, I tried installing from an old vl 4.3 disk I found around the place. INstallation went fine. When booting up the system, it detects tha card manager and identifies the card correctly. However when it tries 'modprobe xircom2ps_cs' the system locks up completely (as it did for vl 5.8 and xubuntu 7.1). I have no idea where to start looking or whether there are some boot switches which might help. Thankyou if you can help me on this.
