Base floppies for Woody
I am in the unfortunate situation of attempting to install Debian onto
my new IBM laptop (X22 - very nice). I have a base 2.2 CD and 6 CDs of
Sid, which I used to install Sid onto my desktop.
However, the kernel on the Potato CD is too old to boot on the laptop
(it stops after loading the md driver), so I thought I'd use a floppy
disk from Woody. I found just what I wanted - a set of floppy images
which support XFS so / can be a XFS partition. However, it then demands
to read packages from Woody... I can't do a network install as this
network card is not very supported yet (IIRC, RH72 is the only distrib
to support it out of the box).
So, where can I download a set of floppy disk images for Woody so that I
can install the base system onto my laptop? Once that is done I'll get
out my Sid CDs but I need to bootstrap something capable.
I don't care if they are testing images, or beta or whatever. Just as
long as they work - I don't want to put RH72 on my laptop!
Thanks for any help,
