Bug#423634: installation and bug report

Used CD ------- Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r0 "Etch" - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20070407-11:29

Unable to boot from CD on this laptop - so used floppies initially. Wrote floppies with rwwrtwin

Can't swear to this (may have got from a mirror somewhere) - but I think the images came from
I just followed the links in the online installation guide for floppies.
If it helps to track down the disks the file on boot.img called disk.lbl says : 
System: debian-installer
Label: Boot floppy
Date: 20070308
Made a set of five disks - Boot - Root - CD and two net drivers.
Incidentally, I have given the wrong model for the laptop which is actually a Toshiba 210CT (rather than DT)
