Boot expert mode from floppy with local IDE CD-ROM.
Cancel when asked for driver disk.
Select English language, US keymap, and local CD-ROM drive.
Add device AHA-1520 (which has a 6.1 installation on an attached disk).
3-button PS/2 mouse.
Upgrade sda3 rather than hda6, choosing to customize packages.

Submit a copy of your /etc/fstab as well as the output of "fdisk -l <device>"
for all of the drives on your system.  There might be something strange
happening with the mounting of the root partition.

I'd installed on top of that disk, so I had to try to recreate the situation.  I
couldn't, I'm afraid. :-(
