Not much of a solution, since the bootdisk images are there so you can
install Linux on a machine that doesn't HAVE Linux.
I believe that's just a problem with the CD-ROM 5.25" images...if you
can use the 1.44MB images, those allegedly work...also you can get new
images off of ftp.cdrom.com that will also work, I'm told...
