md0: preloaded image - system hang

I am trying to install 5.4-Release on a fairly old (still meets 
requirements) Compaq Presario.
Using Disc 1, the system seems to boot up fine until it reaches the line:

md0: Preloaded image </boot/msfroot> xxxxx bytes at xxxxxx.

The system then hangs with the floppy drive light on (making no noise).

Not sure if there is anything I can change about my system to get it to boot 
and install, but I thought I'd see if anyone has come across this.
