Pretty good check.  Sometimes the kernel will do a better job reading
from floppies than the BIOS will, though.  So it might be worth it to
try from a different set.

Hmm... yeah... I've also seen this type of failure when a partition is
too full.  But I guess you woulda checked that.

I wonder if it's just a bad floppy or if there's something else wierd
going on.
