I haven't been able to reproduce this yet. I've successfully done an
FTP install both from an initial floppy boot and from an initial disc1
CD boot. So it's not a "totally generic" problem, it might have
something to do with the pathway you are following through sysinstall.
Was this a brand new install or were you installing over top of a
pre-existing install? If the latter did you recycle the existing disk
partitions or have it wipe out everything and re-do them from scratch?
