From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; T312461)

Description of problem:
I put a disk to 3.5" drive when installer came to a point of making bootdisk 
and it did copied some files, but never finished (I let it hang for about 5 
minutes), until I took the disk out of the drive.
At any point installer didn't say as there a is a problem with drive or disk.
Files what where copied to disk:
initrd.img 40960 bytes
Ldlinux.sys 6656 bytes
vmlinuz 1057280 bytes

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Actual Results:  I got a non-working bootdisk.

Expected Results:  Working bootdisk.

what kind of floppy drive do you have attached?  Please go to the 4rh virtual
terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4.  Are there any odd kernel messages there?  If
so, go to VT2 by pressing Alt+F2.  Insert a known good DOS formatted floppy and

mcopy /tmp/syslog a:

and attach that file to this bug.
