Bug#155745: Install Problems

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0
flavor: vanilla
architecture: i386
model Compaq Contura 4/25
memory: 20mb
scsi: none
cd-rom: none
network card: none
pcmcia: none
This system has a 4.0 gb Simple Technology (Fujitsu) hard disk using EZ-BIOS from Micro House International.
When I try to install from the floppy disks but I get:
Partition check: [592/255/63] which is wrong.  Should be 629/240/63, which comes up right in the hard disk boot
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 0002c877
followed by many more lines of addresses.
I can't seem to see what the memory check is saying so perhaps I would need to specify the amount of memory.  I noticed after this that in Windows for some reason I'm showing only 16mb of memory even though I have 20mb installed.
When I boot from the hard disk I get:
request_module [block-major-58]: Root fs is not mounted
VFS: cannot open root device 3a:05
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 3a:05
