Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2000-06-20
Severity: grave

Using the potato boot-floppied version 2.2.15-2000-06-07, I installed my
system from five floppies and the Internet. After the driver disks had been
loaded into the ramdisk, I went to install modules, but there were none in
the list. After poking around I discovered that /lib/modules was a symlink
to itself, and /lib/modules.old contained the modules. 'rm modules; mv
modules.old modules' took care of the problem.
