Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.13

When I attempt to install potato via b-f, the rescue disk and root
disk load fine, however, when the time comes to "Load Operating
System and Modules", the system fails to recognize the rescue floppy. 

The rescue floppy used was tested on a working system to be byte-for-byte 
equal to rescue.bin. The problem persists in the newer versions, including
the pre-release 2.2.15 

The system is a IBM PS/2 Model 8556-3T2, Processor 486-SLC, with a 
1.44 floppy in it.
