I did not change the drivers.tgz path, I just accepted the one given to me by
the installation program. I guess I got the root disk from the wrong directory
which was set up to pull the generic drivers.tgz file?

A reorganisation of the ftp site, or very clear documentation that you must
get the kernel/root/drivers as a set, and can't mix and match would be useful.

Also, to get my machine to boot, I had to have /lib/modules/2.2.19 and a link
from that to /lib/modules/2.2.19-idepci Previously I reported that just having
/lib/modules/2.2.19 was sufficient, this is incorrect.
