Screen blanks with RedHat 6.0 bootdisk (bootnet.img)

Hello everyone!

I have a very strange problem... I have a P100 working beautifully as my
firewall, running Redhat 5.2.

Now I just got my hands on another 1.6GB harddisk, so I thought I would try
and install RedHat 6.0 on it.

I made the bootdisk (dd if=bootnet.img of=/dev/fd0), I booted, pressed enter
for a standard install, it started booting, and after a few seconds, my
screen just blanked! It powered down like you selected some out-of-range
setting or something...

Strange thing is: the 5.2 bootdisk works ok!

Any ideas? Floppydrive broken? Known bootdisk problem?
