There is an update disk that should fix this. Download it, gzip it, dd (or
 rawrite) it to a floppy disk. When you boot into the install, specify "linux
 updates" at the boot prompt. The install will prompt you to install this floppy
 when it needs it.


 It should fix this problem. Please reopen this bug if it doesn't.
