Since it was the larger disk that kept failing to take a filesystem, and
it appears fine with good power, I would expect things to work now. You
were not previously clear that you were interested in installing TWO
separate systems, one Debian and one for a novice, hence my previous
puzzlement over the choice of Debian for a novice. The next local
installfest of any kind is apparently this Saturday, albeit by Santa Cruz:
Are you looking for something sooner than that?
