Re: I need hellp installing debian....

I made a linux boot disk yesterday and linux spat out the first four
floppies.  Linux is _very_ picky about floppies.  Try some more disks.
Sometimes old floppies are better than the new ones which are very much
built to a price now-a-days.

That said, does anyone know why Linux is so picky about floppies?  I know
that dos will retry several times to read a flaky sector - does Linux do
this too?
