Description Brent Nordquist 2001-06-30 02:29:19 UTC
Description of Problem:
After successfully using the Fairfax beta1 bootnet.img floppy to get one
machine going on an install, I tried to boot a second machine with the
same floppy.  The boot failed; didn't even get to the boot prompt.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt boot from bootnet.img floppy diskette.

Actual Results:
SYSLINUX 1.52 2001-02-07 Boot failed

Expected Results:
For the machine to boot into the installer.

Additional Information:
I entered this machine's details as Beta Hardware Profile #54.
This machine installed 7.1 with no problems.  I'm happy to get
you additional information.

I saw this once as well; tossing the  floppy in the bin and using a different
disk solved my problem; it seems my disk had gone bad. Could you try a second
disk to rule this out ?
