I tried both way of istallation. I will brief you below what I experienced when I tried installation in text mode:


boot:linux text -> is typed
OK SKIP
SKIP
now the message is :
----------
No hard drives have been found
and you probably needs to manually choose
device drivers for the installation to
succeed.would you like to select drivers now
*** YES NO
if YES the message is
--------------
the following drives have been found
ethernet 8139..
** DONE ADD DEVICE

IF done is pressed we can go till DiskDruid
if I PRESS disk druid or auto partion another message comes
----------
No drives found. An error has occured . no valid devices were found
on which to create new file systems. please check your
hardware for the cause of the problem.

if i press OK system is rebooting



** IF ADD DEVICE IS PRESSED THE MESSAGE IS THEN
---------------------------------------------------------
SELECT A DRIVER TO LOAD .If it does not appear and you have a driver disk press F2

Please select the driver below which you wish to load.

3COM 3C590/3C595/3C90X/3CX980....

OK BACK
....................

*** If NO is pressed then we get the message as :

No drives found. An error has occured . no valid devices were found
on which to create new file systems. please check your
hardware for the cause of the problem.
