Hi John.  Thanks for your report.

Well, the good news is that this problem is (hopefully) already fixed in
boot-floppies 2.2.5.  The bad news is that 2.2.5 hasn't been released yet. 
Any day now, I guess.

If you know how, like life on the edge and just can't wait, you could try
compiling from the boot-floppies sources from cvs.debian.org.  Should you
choose to accept this mission ... I'll be very interested to hear whether
the Mylex devices are handled correctly.
