I found out that I had to manually create a floppy with
a /boot populated with necessary modules, In my case
3c509.o, sunrpc.o, lockd.o and nfs.o.

The install then went on but it Oopsed a bit later. I
mailed this list twice today about exactly this. Oh
btw, this was for the newest woody floppies, I also
tried potato ones, but that one just didnt get any
further than what it did for you, I think
