Bug#301374: Package: installation-reports - Floppy Boot Error

Is there another place where I can get the images?
cause from 2005-03-24 only net-drivers.img is available and not root.img and boot.img
this is from http://people.debian.org/~stappers/d-i/images/

I needed to boot the floppy disk with:
linux root=/dev/fd0
otherwise I get the following errors:

cramfs: wrong magic
mount_devfs_fs(): unable to mount devfs, err: -2
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

If you'll try again with the next daily build made after this message,
that should not be necessary, although it's possible my change could
break the 2.6 floppies (dunno).

also when asked to put in a new disk and hit <enter>
I need to hit <enter> four (4) times

This is a kernel bug, I'll reassign it to the kernel.
