Hmm... I thought they would work.  What goes wrong?  I guess they are just
a dos format and that doesn't handle an incorrect size well.  (The base
images are a multi-part tarball I believe.)

They were the first attempt.  We ran out of space so we made bigger disks.
You can try to format your floppy for the larger size (check the
debian-testing archives, it may be in there).

The better solution is to find the 1440 disks.  They are enroute now, i.e.
sitting in incoming: ftp://llug.sep.bnl.gov/pub/debian/Incoming/
