I have successfully installed Debian 1.3 on my Thinkpad using the 'tecra' disks.
To get a useful boot floppy, I had to be sure to install the kernel from the
rescue floppy onto the harddisk prior to making a boot floppy (if I remember
correctly).  I always have to make sure to force make-kpkg to make zImages when
I recompile the kernel (to add FAT32 support for instance).
