Aha! You've got 3 sets of boot disks in there:

total 29
dr-xr-xr-x   5 root     root         2048 Jan 14 05:18 .
dr-xr-xr-x   6 root     root         2048 Dec 13 09:32 ..
dr-xr-xr-x   2 root     root         6144 Dec 11 15:03 2.1.2_1998-12-04
dr-xr-xr-x   2 root     root         8192 Dec 19 17:14 2.1.3-1998-12-18
dr-xr-xr-x   2 root     root         8192 Dec 30 15:34 2.1.4-1998-12-29
lr-xr-xr-x   2 root     root           16 Jan  2 08:07 current -> 2.1.4-1998-12-29

Hmmm. The script should cope and delete the reference to all but current.
Things will still work, but this is not optimal. Can you check your log
output and see what the script says at that point? 

Actually, don't bother. I see the logic hole there. I wish the ftp
maintainers would remove old boot floppies instead of just leaving them
there, and this would then be a lot easier. I'm fixing things now.

Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
