Bootdisk / syslinux Problems


I recently got an old Dell 486 PC. I tried to install Debian 2.0 on it, but
booting with a disk which is using syslinux is not working. I tried
bootdisks from other distributions to make shure, that it's syslinux - same
results. Booting from a RedHat 5.0 bootdisk, this one is not using
syslinux, worked fine. The boot process always stops after a few seconds:
loading xxx .... Has anybody seen this before ? What can I do ? Booting
from CD-ROM is no option, because the PC has no CD :-) I tried to change
the hardware, no change.

Thanks for your help.
