Bug#4019: Decompression failure on Install Boot Disk
Version: Debian 1.1
I have been unable to boot from the boot1440.bin image. I have tried
- downloaded the image from a variety of sources.
- used several different floppies
- erased (using dd if=/dev/zero ...) the floppies before writing the
image to them.
- formatted the floppies using a variety of tools
When I attempt to boot, I get the following:
invalid compressed format (err=2)
Then it tells me that the system is halted.
I've tried entering boot options (such as 'linux ether=10,0x320,eth0').
When I do this, I get a slightly different error message:
incomplete literal tree
Where do I go from here?
