Actually, as I understood it, the problem was poor linux floppy
drivers. You'll note that when most errors occure is when reading the base
image or rescue disks, I have very rarely had the boot disk fail.
The bios is what writes the floppy and is what dos uses to get at it, it
is most unlikely that it is the problem.
