Okay, where is it?
Alright, I'm a knucklehead. And I need some basic help...
I've installed and am running Debian Potato on a PC (it's doing the
IP Masquerading and acting as the firewall for my home network), and
I thought that I'd load Potato on my G3 PowerBook, as well.
But then, depression set in. I can't boot off of the CDs (purchased
from LSL) since I don't have the New World ROMs.
So I created the Boot and Root floppies, which work just fine. Since

find it mentioned in the documentation.
So that's where I sit. There's probably some simple way out of this,
but I'm not seeing it from the documentation. I happily accept any
The plan was simple. Unfortunately, so was Bullwinkle.
