Bug#34688: [BAD FLOPPY?] a fluke?
Good evening Enrique ,
I reinstalled Debian 2.1 on a prestine partition.
The boot floppy worked.
Close this bug.
A tried reinstalling it three times,
on different partition layouts.
(My box is an "experiment machine" with many
bootable and reliable Debian systems. --
I keep various kernels around... )
I discovered the base files will not install
with a partition smaller than 60 MB.
I tried to get a firewall running on an old 100 MB
-- The box doesn`t like my plans:
10 MB swap, 60 MB programs, 30 MB transfer space
After installing the base files on an ISA 486,
I get a new problem. The bootable floppies
are SOOOOOO SLLLLOOOWWWWW.
It take 10 times longer to boot with
the new boot floppies.
I suspect the installation script has been tested
for newer machines.
I'll submit a detailed bug report later.
