The SATA hard drive was not recognized during the install. As I found suggested elsewhere, this is fixed by using the kernel parameter linux pci=nomsi. I read that another problem was that GRUB wouldn't work. I wanted to try for myself, and sure enough during the first boot grub $hit the bed. So, lilo it is. Those were the only two problems I ran into during the install and neither were too hard to fix. as described on

Next show stopper is the boot loader. Grub doesn't work, so you need Lilo. In Debian just press ESC when it tries to install grub and choose Lilo.
