Description of problem:
The boot floppy created from the redhat 7.2 boot.img unexpectedly 
terminates after hitting return with one or no boot options present at the 
boot menu prompt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

2.Boot the computer with the boot floppy, command prompt and boot options 
menu appear.
3.Type any of the available boot floppy boot options, hit return.

Actual Results:  boot:

Additional info:

This machine is a Celebris GL 5120 ST with the Adaptec AIC-7850 SCSI 
chipset built-in.  It has a 1 GB SCSI HD, 24 MB RAM, Built-in video and 
10BaseT ethernet.  Both Redhat 6.2 and 7.0 can be successfully installed 
on this machine from Redhat 6.2 and 7.0 boot disks.  However, the boot 
disks for Redhat 7.1 and 7.2 produce the described error.

Are you sure the floppy is not damaged?  This kind of message is usually bad media.
