Well, you should have filed the bug against 'boot-floppies' rather
than installer, and also probably put a better title, but we've fixed

I assume youre using the udma66 set of boot-floppies.  Is that so?

When you see the kernel messages at the start, does the kernel
recognize hdg?  You can type dmesg in tty2 to see those messages.

If not, it's a hardware or kernel problem.

If so, it's a boot-floppies problem.
