Shawn, are you sure the diskette you are using is working properly?

The most common cause of that message is a disk read error (in fact, I
think it's the only way to cause that error at that stage).

Maybe the diskette is corrupt in a way that neither `f6.txt' nor the
kernel image (`linux') can be safely read.

Could you try with other diskette, and make sure that the floppy drive
is working properly?
