Comments/Problems:

Tried the floppy install on three different machines, with
similar results:
booting from "boot" floppy
-> initial boot screen - Pressed ENTER
-> "Loading linux ......"
-> "Loading initrd ...."
-> "ready"
-> [Then cursor flashing in the next line, and hang for ever]
and:
[Sometimes I got a kernel panic:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
unknown-block(9,0)]


Tried also with params like "acpi=off" or "noapic" or "nolapic"
or "BOOT_DEBUG=3": no success, no additional infos.



Kind regards
Holger
