This code looks pretty broken to me. It looks like it is performing a short write (i.e., the write only writes some of the data it is given) when it is appending to /target/drivers.tgz. It then ignores this error and tries to install /target/drivers.tgz anyway. I'm not exactly sure why the short write would occur. Could you please switch over to tty2 and make sure that you have enough disk space? You can do so by running df. Irregardless, it should be fixed, both the handling of short writes and the installation of drivers.tgz even if it fails to read all of it from the floppies. Matt P.S. Please preserve the CC to debian-boot so that there is an archive of the discussion, and so that other people can help out as well.
