 No, the problem is that you seem to have been mixing installation
 methods.

 If you want to install from the network, you should _not_ use the
 cd-drivers floppy, but only the net-drivers floppy. The ide-drivers
 needed to access your HD will be automatically loaded from the
 network later. Using the cd-drivers floppy makes the installation
 system look for an installation CD to load additional installer
 components from (instead of from the network), so the name of that
 floppy is correct.

 Closing your installation report as there were no other issues.
 (Note: you can still react to this mail and if our conclusion is
 wrong the report can be reopened.)

 Cheers, FJP

I realise this, but by allowing the install to load the IDE drivers at
an earlier stage would allow people to switch to the 2nd console and
enable a swap device for machines that dont have enough ram for the
installer.

Geoff.
