Re: Bug#49172: dalvarez: Re: ["Nigel R. Armfield" <N.R.Armfield@lmu.ac.uk>] Bug#49172: Boot problems

after booting debian says that the fdd of my 
LX is a "post-1993"-model. with this i never
had errors on PROM-Level but the recently 
described "I/O-port already in use"-message 
is output sometimes when i try to mount the
device (not reproduceable). maybe the IPX-
series whose owners reported the error with
the boot-disks has an older drive, as AFAIK
it was released earlier, which doesn't work
with the disks. it is possible that the whole
problem turns out to be an incompatibility 
with an older fdd-model. then maybe a change
of the disk-image to accomplish the older
standart solves it, assuming that the "post 
1993"-drive is backwards compatible.

IPX-users should check the model-# of the fdd
