The warning message should probably be ignored. Some installs disk are
ext2 filesystems, some msdos filesystems, so the installation program
try first to mount one as msdos (which probably cause the kernel "bad

problem occurs only when doing a "warm reboot"? Are you able to
boot from the rescue floppy normally after a hard-reset?
