The good: both Potato and Woody bootdisks (w/

The bad: By the time it comes to installing the
base system, dbootstrap collapses. No output, just

contents (on both Woody and Potato) are unchanged.
If I can get the base system loaded, things would

opportunity to look over drivers I'll need and
where to get them. I would, however, really
appreciate any idea as to what exactly is
happening to make dbootstrap choke.
Many thanks in advance -
