Subject: [gentoo-dev] install bootstrap problem

so i have a bit of a bootstrap problem.  i'm trying to install rc3 off of
the cd, however i'm installing onto an older machine (a p90) that can't
boot directly from the cd.  I made a floppy from the bootgrub image,
however, the machine locks up shortly into the install process.  The exact
point is right after it has found the cd and displays a few messages (the
last of which is "changine root" i believe).  Anyway, the machine just
sits at that point.  I'd also like to note that this is a clean hard
drive, so an install from an already existing os is a no go,
unfortunately.  I would like for the floppy/cd combo to work...has anyone
seen this kind of error, or could offer some tips?


thanks,


dave
