Please use either the daily builds, or better yet RC2.

floppies are not supported on chpr or prep, the current stuff has only be
ported to oldworld pmac, using miboot, no chance it will work on either prep
or chrp, but you are welcome to help in the porting.

on chrp/prep, the current recomended boot method is either netboot, or the
cdrom booting.
