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.
