Hi all,

I have tried everything to get dapper to run on my sony vaio in the
hopes of being able to ditch XP.

First, the live CD won't boot at all unless I specify "irqpoll" as a
boot parameter. Even then, although the installer can repartition
successfully, the actual install stops around 15%. Inspection of the
dmesg logs reveals that the sata drive becomes 'confused'.

I can install successfully from the alternate install cd, but once I
reboot, the kernel panics. I can sometimes get right into gnome before
it happens, but as soon as I do something that requires disk access, the
kernel is likely to panic.

I have tried to update the kernel to the latest linux-686 kernel but the
problems remain. I have tried booting with a Breezy live cd and it seems
to work without problems, although less hardware is supported out of the
box on Breezy.

Any help with this would be appreciated.
