Package: Debian 2.1,

Machine: 486dx266 on a TEN motherboard, 850MB conner HD.

I have just installed debian on this machine from the 260MB dos partition(hda1)

The installation proceeds fine, but when I reboot I am faced with the following prompt


If I press F, I can boot from the floppy. If I press A I get the following prompt


And if I then press 1 it boots successfully into MS-DOS, but this is all I can do. 

My other partitions are

hda1(DOS) 260MB
hda2(/)   50MB
hda3(SWAP)   20MB
hda4(/usr) 480MB

IF I boot from the custom floppy made during the install process then everything works fine...

I have not included my kernel as the same problem occured with an earlier version of debian as well...

We believe the bug you reported has been fixed as of the Potato boot flopppies,
version 2.2.8.  Please let us know if not.

Remember that often bugs are filed against boot-floppies, when the should
be filed against modconf, base-config, kernel-image-2.2.14, or other
related packages.  Please do you best to track down which package is the 
culprit when creating bugs.
