Binary package hint: kernel-image-2.6.17-6-386-di

On all 2.6.17 and below kernels, the JMicron JMB363 controller, found on the ASUS P5B motherboard, does not work. As a result, the Ubuntu Live CD will not boot (unable to mount root partition on the CD) and the Ubuntu Install CD cannot mount itself. More information is available here: <http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=234706&highlight=jmicron>.

The 2.6.18 kernel (which is still in beta as of August 23, 2006) incorporates a fix for this problem. To fix this problem on 2.6.17, a patch could be used.
