There's lots and most of it looks normal but here are the highlights...

The install routine, before the system reboots, the installer lists system
identification stuff:

Resource 'draco.resource' : not present
chipset: ECS
Module 'Magic 36.7': not present
Module 'kickad 36.57': not present
Module '03000 Bonus': not present
Module '0300 bonus': 0x00f864f8

(this looks bad)^
Then it shows the memory (1 block) and chipmem (2megs), kernel entry and
ramdisk stuff.

After the reboot lots of stuff shoots by but it shows that it's starting
kswapd v
Finds my non-working floppy with:

At this point the hard drive light comes on solid and that's it.  gone gone

Thanks again, in advance for your help.
