    Unhappy Ideneb 1.4,Dell Precision 690 and Acer Aspire 5100

    Greetings from Bosnia
    So i will try to explain the situation as best as i can and really really hope that you can help me...
    I have a Dell Precision 690
    Xeon Quad Core 2.33
    Nvidia Quadro-FX 3500
    SCSI (Panasonic i believe) disk
    I dont know the motherboard...
    Anyway so i burned the iso on a dvd (at 16x) and tried to boot it,everything is just fine until i get to the partition-ing,there i cant see my HDD,at first i wondered if it maybe was because its SCSI and i need to download another distro or a patch (downloading another distro would be a bit of a problem because i just get 10GB bandwidth).I looked all over google some people suggested to change the boot settings which i didnt do by now...
    Another thing,will i have compatibility issues with this conf. and leo,becuse its important to have quad cores and full video card working because i mostly use this machine for Photoshop,Illustrator,Flash...
    So if you can tell me everything i need to know about this so i can get it to work...
    __________________________________________________ _______________
    Acer aspire 5100
    So the other problem would be my somewhat old laptop,which i would like to turn into a alike-macbook
    The specs are:
    AMD Turion 64 mobile (2.2 Ghz)
    Ati Radeon Xpress 1100
    80GB disk (i belive its SATA,woudent really be normal if it were SCSI)
    2GB RAM
    Atheros AR5007EG wireless card
    So here the problem is a bit different i cant even start leopard,when i start diagnostic i get:
    IOPCCard Bridge:start failed
    fix enetflowcontrol-Flow Control is disabled
    Still Waiting for root device
    Somewhere i read that i should recouple some cables but thats a bit difficult since its a laptop...
    again woudent really be good if i have to download another distro becuse of my limit (vi va la Bosnia)
    I tryed:
    rd=disk0s1 -v
    platform x86pc -v
    platform=APCI -v
    -x -v
    -f -v
    Thats about all i tryed by now,would be really nice if you could help me to get Leopard to work
    If you need any more information please ask here or send a mail at or add me on msn
    Sorry for my lousy English,not my mother tongue

    Come on people,you cant seriously tell me that there isnt anyone here who cant help me out with this...
    Ok i can understand that i cant get it to work on the Acer but it should work on the precision i mean all of the components are atleast alike the Mac Pro,and the only problem is that there are no disks in Partition Utility.
    If you cant help me,at least tell me where i should ask for help
