Well, I got past the problem, but don't know what
I downloaded the boot.flp, kern1.flp and kern2.flp
images and made floppies.
Booted using the floppies and did the install off the
burned iso images (the same ones I tried to boot with
and caused the btx: halted).
Installed clean. Now the machine is running 5.4-rel.
thanks for all who tried to help.

I found this when I Googled BTX Halted. ss:esp= :

Yes, the BTX Halted error occurs prior to the install. I tried hard power
after getting the message and it still occurrs. I verified the MD5 has and
clean. I am out of ideas.
Is there a special way to burn the iso's in windows using Nero ? I followed
nero instructions for burning an ISO image disk.
