20353IO Error, debian installer

      I am trying to install debian on the NSLU2, and thanks to the help from
      this mailing list I've managed to connect to the debian installer and
      start the install process. However, I'm hitting some snags in partition
      creation.

      I'm using a Maxtor 60GB HD in a Coolmax360 enclosure. The drive mounts
      up fine in Ubuntu Gutsy, with no errors (I've tried repartitioning and
      fsck).

      In the debian installer, after "calculating partitions" I get the error:
      Input/output error during read on
      /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc

      I'm wondering if it is the enclosure, after googling:
      http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/peripherals-hardware/97245-cant-mount-coolmax-hd-360-enclosure.html

      Is there a workaround for this? Will the next version of debian solve
      it? Do I need to just get new enclosures?

      I've attached three files - the nslu2's syslog, the partman log, and the
      syslog excerpt from when I plug it in in ubuntu.

      The NSLU2's /var/log/syslog is full of lines like:
      Apr 12 03:42:58 kernel: sd 0:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x10070000
      Apr 12 03:42:58 kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 4

      Below is an excerpt of /var/log/partman, showing the error:
