Re: Problem with 1.2 install and floppy
This is a common problem. Try making another copy of base14-1 (and the
others if thaey fail) on a different floppy disk. I had to make two or
three before I got a complete set of boot floppies that were reliable.
Even floppies that I had used to install debian on my desktop system
wouldn't necessarily work to install on my laptop. Kinda strange.
