Bug#123661: boot-floppies: 3.0.18(cvs) serial console unusable on i18n enabled flavours (i386)

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2001-12-12
Severity: important

when the kernel is passed the console=ttyS0 option, the kernel boot
messages are properly sent to the console.

however, the language choose shows up on the first virtual console, and
the keyboard is non-responsive.

the /boot/debian/kernel and /boot/debian/root.bin were taken from

from /boot/grub/menu.lst:

title Debian Bootfloppy test (serial console) /boot/debian/linux
