You are correct, but I am sorry that I didn't mentioned before: even with
a new test on another system (1x PII266MHz)  it failed!
I tried on my PIV1.7 laptop which I used to create the floppies.

Have you tried to boot with the boot.img on a floppy, you let me try this
other chance. May my floppy (reader/writer) be damaged?
