Try to upgrade existing Phoebe system without modification by booting from
Steps to Reproduce:
After creating boot disk, got message asking to save data on a diskette.
I ignored this the first time, but found my system got a "kernel panic"
when I attempted to use the boot diskette.
My system is a portable Panasonic CF47, with PCMCIA Adaptec SCSI to a Yamaha
I plan to do some investigation:
Can I fix my system in rescue mode?
What if I remove the SCSI adapter? I have already succeeded in installing

I have discovered that Phoebe on the RedHat site has advanced to version 8.0.93.
So I'll change over to this new version, and hope this bug no longer occurs.
It seems to be dying trying to eject the CD.
We handle this better in the newer phoebe (8.0.93)
