I have a Compaq Deskpro (PIII 996MHz, 256MB RAM, two WD 20.0GB hard
drives in RAID I with which I am experimenting. The first experiment
was setting up RAID I with IDE drives. I keep a local Debian mirror
that I update at least once a week. I have installed lenny. The
utility "uname -a" yields: Linux 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Sat Nov 8
19:00:26 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

I did an update and included the insserv 1.12.0-4_i386.deb to be installed.

I followed the directions from the wiki:


to do the installation and configuration, namely:

aptitude install insserv && dpkg-reconfigure insserv

The installation and configuration terminated with the line:

success: Boot system successfully converted

I shut down and did a cold boot. I reviewed the dmesg output and
noticed a problem right at the end. There was some problem with [drm].
I will be happy to elucidate further if needed.
