Description Bryan Leopard 2001-11-28 11:58:41 EST
Created a boot floppy during installation of Redhat 7.2 EE. Tried to boot 
up the system with the floppy, got error message--->"ROMDISK: Compressed 
image found at block 0" Unable to boot with the boot floppy.

System - ML370 (P25) 08/28/2001
              1.266GHZ/133MHZ with 512 Kbyte cache
Boot - 5i (firmware 1.60)
controllers: SA532, Adaptec, embedded adaptec

1. Install linux redhat 7.2 EE
2. Create a boot floppy.
3. Boot from the floppy, you will see the error.

Probably because the floppy didn't actually fit.  We properly warn about this now.
