I had no trouble along these two lines.

HOWEVER, I couldn't get the installer to find the installatiopn CD
after booting from it, regardless of IDE or SCSI CDROM drive.

Also, neither the SYM/NCR driver(s) nor the DAC960 driver were included,
making the install machine selection much smaller...

The above problems occurred with both ISOs.
