Install failure using floppies on _old_ machine

Dear All,

I have inherited a couple of old 486 machines and I am trying to make
them useful by installing potato on them. I am using the current boot
disks (v ...17?). I have already used the same disks to install on
another different box.

The rescue floppy gets as far as printing the message 

   md driver 0.36.6 MAX_MD_DEV=4, MAX_REAL=8

and stops. 

What is the install doing at this stage? Is there any known
problem fix? 

The machine was made by "DAN" and dates from 1993 if this helps.
