Debian Etch on Sun Blade 1000

During the installation Debian doesn't detect the hard disks.   Downloading the necessary non-free firmware and loading the module fixes the problem:

udpkg -i firmware-qlogic-di_0.4+etchnhalf.1_all.udeb
modprobe -r qla2xxx
modprobe qla2xxx


The current package for squeeze (Feb 2012) is firmware-qlogic_0.28+squeeze1_all.deb.

I installed via the netinst CD and it when prompted during installation, copy this package onto a thumbdrive and hit "Yes", or do it via shell as suggested above.

I have read so many articles on debian etch sun blade and the content is needed to help the websites. So users can easily understood the following articles from the content, and thank you.

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.

Please let me know where you got your theme.
Many thanks
