Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

I cannot install it...
by haocheng on Wed 3rd Nov 2004 09:01 UTC

I want to give Ubuntu a try, so I went to buy a new Seagate SATA HD a few days ago.

However, I cannot install Ubuntu because it always hangs when loading the sd_mod module...
If I don't load the module, the installation goes smoothly,
but then it cannot find my new SATA HD in the step of partitioning HD ;)

My MB is ASUS P4S800D (SIS 655FX).
Doesn't the kernel support SIS 655FX with SATA HD?
If that's really the case, I may consider buying a new MB ;)

I posted the problem on the forum but no response yet...
Any help is appreciated and many thanks in advance~~~
