If this is not a typo then you can forget about using this box until you
get more HD space, it takes 40M to install Slink (Debian 2.1).
It is a typo. I meant 1 GB. The annoying thing is that if I hadn't mesed up
the partitioning when the installation worked I wouldn't be in this mess. I
was hoping the NFS option would be a solution, or at least identify if the
problem is due to the floppy drive. It isn't the floppies themselves as
they worked when installing on the other machine. Anyone know what I did
wrong when trying the NFS option? The path I quoted earlier is where I had
stored the base2_1.tgz file.
