Bizarre! I have never had a problem installing the base system, as
long as I was using floppies I'd ensured were formatted (by me!)
beforehand. Errors (flakiness) have popped up beyond that point, but
not in base.
I just wanted to reply for the following reasons:
- good description of the problem. :-)
- can there be anything weird going on in your bios? turn off ram
- perhaps describe your hardware a bit more verbosely; how much
- it's good practice. I learn a lot from this stage of an install
I wish I could help out more. Good luck.
