(no need to cc me)

  - another old machine (soon to be retired i hope), but
for those who are trying to write a USB stick using the
debian installer i386 netinst image it may too have the 
problem and report a missing isolinux.bin.

  the machine i'm on is using the D865GVHZ Intel chipset
and the most up to date bios i could find.

BIOS BF86510A.86A.0075.P24.0503071605 03/07/2005

  the fix used on the image for the xfce cd also worked
for the netinst image.

  dd conv=notrunc bs=1 count=432 if=isohdpfx.bin.170324 of=debian-stretch-DI-rc2-i386-netinst.iso

  Thank you to those who got me to a bootable USB
stick/installer image:  :)
