The difference likely being that KRUD is on 700MB CDs. Some drives (mostly
much older, probably 1X CD drives) can't read them. We've had a handful of
people with this problem, but the *VAST* majority of drives don't have this
problem and we've kind of needed the space in the past...
But you said it wouldn't boot the floppy either? Hmm...

Well, if the CDs can be copied to a disc partition, you can install from
that... I think the 7.1 installer wants the ISOs directly to be available,
rather than just the files in the file-system. Use "dd" to suck the full
Alternately, there's a net install. Just copy both CDs into the same
directory and use NFS, FTP, or HTTP to snag from there.
It's in that place where I put that thing that time.
