error message repaeated several times, from dbg_log.tgz:
dbootstrap[153]: Failure trying to run: chroot / target dpkg --force-auto-select --force-overwrite --force this happened after the base installation packages had been retrieved from http://http.debian.org/ for a woody system.
i was able to make a boot floppy, and with Toms rootboot, edit /etc/fstab so that i could boot the system.

at that point i could log in, and look at things, but daemons will not run, noting is getting logged to any file in /var/log  so i cannot look for errors.

I have the same problem here looks like a needed dpkg isn't downloaded.

I'm gona redo all that stuff again right now and tell you all what's missing.
