Re: installing potato on a dinosaurus ;-)

I've run into this problem myself, when installing on similar
hardware.  What I ended up doing was taking a complete installation
from some other box, and tar-ing out the base.tgz by hand.  Then you
have to delete /sbin/unconfigured.sh and fix some other small things
(timezone, for instance), by hand.
