These work. Went through the installer and got the error message quik needs 
root to be ext2, would I like to go back.

I choose continue without boot loader, assuming I'd still be able to boot with 
BootX, finished the install. Rebooted, and I get nothing.

I get a flashing floppy icon.

I'll see if I can find a mini-8(?) serial cable.
