Sure, just install the boot-floppies package, that includes source to 
the latest boot-floppies for Potato, 2.2.25.  

Are you sure you were using boot-floppies 2.2.19 ?  Or was it kernel

Can someone on amiga confirm this bug in latest Potato boot-floppies?
I am not a porter nor do I have any amiga knowledge.  HOwever, I do
know that we are supposed to have amiga partition table support and it
is enabled (according to utilities/fdisk/config.h).
