I am attempting to install debian on the 
second of two scsi drives (sdb1,2).  The 
install proceeds fine all the way to 
where I try to write the kernel.  It won't 
format the floppy and complains with 
an IO error that it can't write to device 2:00,
and something about sectors 17 and 32 alternately.

It won't install the kernel on the second drive
either, which is surprising, since I had
just removed redhat linux from the exact
same place.

Anyway, I have installed debian twice with no problems.
This third time is tough.  I haven't found any 
reference to this kind of problem in any of the
installation documentation.  I am not really
sure what to do at this point.  With the 
semester started, win nt may be the unavoidable
solution. :(  If this is a known problem, I would 
appreciate a pointer to the appropriate documentation.
