Even if Tom's doesn't understand the RAID layout (which is probable,
since Tom can't fit *everything* on one floppy) then that wouldn't cause
that particular error. Tom's RootBoot has the kernel and a compressed
filesystem image all on the floppy, and the compressed image is loaded
as a RAMdisk and mounted as / .
The most likely cause of the LIL- error for Tom's is marginal media or
floppy drives. Not all drives can successfully format 1722K floppies,
though most can. Not all floppy disks can successfully take a 1722K
format, either, since quality control on 3.5" floppies is practically
nonexistent these days.
