CD image would boot after POST screen and initialise the installer, but
would not be able to mount the net-install CDROM to install the base
system.  Gave error message saying possibly use net install method instead.

Downloaded net install floppy images (blech) and currently downloading
base packages after successfully partitioning HDD.
