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.
