bleeding-edge kernel to detect devices the 1.2.13 kernel doesn't find

One of our users had an IDE Mitsumi CD-ROM drive that would not be
installed by our boot disk, but we found that the 1.3.42 kernel would
work (Thanks Thalia!). If you have this drive or other hardware that
isn't detected by the 1.2.13 kernel on the install disk, a 1.3.42 boot
disk will help. I've uploaded 1.3.42 boot disks for 5.25 and 3.5 inch
floppies, and "image", "source", and "includes" packages for the
1.3.42 kernel.

You will also need the very latest "root" disk, dated November 20 on
our main FTP archive. It's
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/debian-0.93/disks/root1440.gz .

The boot disk is presently in
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/private/project/Incoming/boot-1.3.42-1440.gz .
Choose the 1200 or 1440 version depending on the size of your "A" floppy

The boot disk will soon be moved out of Incoming, then you can find it in:
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/debian-0.93/disks/alt/boot-1.3.42-1200.gz .
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/debian-0.93/disks/alt/boot-1.3.42-1440.gz .
