My friend, you have a serious problem... your f(fuck)pnp board
controler. I tryed for decades install a linux in such a device. In the
boot disk scan, it won´t find a no IRQ board. 

In my controler, there is no jumper to force the IRQ. One bad solution
is to copy all the sources to your HD and proceed the instalation from

Any clue, please e-mail me.
