Debian on a Gateway 400XL

Hi, IU've been using debian for about one year now on my desktop PC, and
I just got a Gateway 400XL for college.  I really want to put debian on
it, however, I cannot seem to boot it from any rescue disks in order to
install it.  I'd really like to use woody or sarge, but I'll use
whatever I can get to work... when booting, the boot process just stops

Floppy Drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
FDC 0 is a national semiconductor PC87306
md driver 0.36.6 MAX_MD_DEV=4, MAX_REAL=8

Any advice would be helpful... This error occurs when using the woody
rescue disk which is the 2.2.20 kernel.  Any help would be
appreciated... I leave for college in 3 days and am in desperate need of
