Bug#99934: [fw: Re: is this bug fixed?]
Okay, looks like if we test putting the root filesystem on an extended
partition and then we try to make a boot-floppy we should be able to
tell if this bug is fixed or not, yes?

I got my potato version working, however it sure was a headache. My main problem was that I was trying to put my root Debian on an extended partition. It kept failing at "Making the boot disk". Once I changed my plan to putting the root partition on a primary partition, I didn't have that problem. I know about the lilo and 1024 cylinder limit but I have never had problems with that before. Anyways, I don't have an extra system to try it again on. Sorry. I have really appreciated Debian system after install, although I don't use it a lot right now. And Debian's documentation, bug-tracking, and mailing-list methods have made me a big fan.
Thanks for checking up. Anymore questions regarding this bug?
