Bug#242021: back to main menu after reading net-drivers.floppy (2004-04-04, oldworld ppc, netinstall with floppies)
> I just tried the floppies from
>nt/powerpc-small/floppy/ which were built (or copied there) on 03-Apr-2004
Now I've also tried
and get the same results as with 2004-03-04:

Only took three floppies this time ;-) One medium was faulty the other two
diffed ok. Anyway...

So this is the new bug report.
The 2004-04-04 installation is still ongoing, with 2004-04-03 I still had the
bug #241228 ("You are attempting to install an initrd kernel image (version
2.4.25-powerpc-small. This will not work unless you have configured your boot
loader to use initrd...) which I thought was fixed with
base-installer_0.066_powerpc.changes ? I'll add info to bug#241228 if
2004-04-04 also shows this bug.
