Description bizjak 1999-07-06 02:37:24 EDT
My computer has only LS-120 SuperDisk IDE ATAPI floppy disk
drive. When I want to make a boot diskette (when asked by
installer) installer hangs, because there is no /dev/fd0
device.

However, answering "no" to above mentioned question,
installation continues with no other problems at all.

There should be some sort of warning, that installer could
not make boot diskette on /dev/fd. Eventualy - installer
should make boot floppy on /dev/hdX

This bug can also affect other ATAPI connected floppy
drives, ZIP drives and drives, connected thru parallel port.

Hope you will find this bug report useful!
