Re: Install problems: Potato / boot disks 2.2.5

Obviously, we can't support mix-and-match slink / potato
installations.  At this point, the sole concern of this group is the
potato boot-floppies.

I would appreciate, Terry, if we could focus on the install problems
in onto your system in the pure potato world.  You say:

I have absolutely no idea what this is -- any clues, anyone?

This sounds like unrelated problems in modconf to me.  I hope these
are fixed in the new modconf.  We'll be burning a new boot-floppies
2.2.6 with this problem I hope fixed.

However, for your report to be more effective, I really do need more
explicit information regarding at exactly what stage the errors were
emitted, and what the error messages exactly were.
