: 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.
