 : You neglected to say what your system actually was.  If it's a ThinkPad,
 : try using the "Tecra" disk images.  You shouldn't need to use the
 : `floppy=thinkpad' option on the more recent ThinkPads.

On very recent Thinkpads (a 380Z I just got Thursday) the tecra boot
disk causes a "A20 gating failed" error on boot.  The normal rescue disk
image just just the looping reboot we're used to :)

I haven't yet had time to investigate this further.
