Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Comments/Problems:
Tried to install woody (previously loaded on an ASUS P3 system in 2003)
on new ASUS P4 system.  Proceeded from initial configuration through
install drivers, OK.  
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>
Tried to load a copy of the basedebs tarball from a CD, using the manual
option.  The CD was checked and then processed, ending in the error:
/pool/main/u/util-linux/util-linux_2.11n-4_i386.deb was not pre
downloaded
This is possibly related to another installer failure, trying to load
sarge on a P3 system; a bug to be filed.  
I suspect the memory management of these two systems are different; this
P4 system requires Windows 98 SE or later to run, and with Windows 95 it
reports protection error while initializing the IOS.  
On the other hand, I took a copy of the whole woody base installation
(about 80 MB) and copied it into the root on this P4 and got it to boot.

I'm closing this report since the woody boot floppies are not actively
supported (sorry), and it works with d-i, according to your report
