  No, it's not the media. I had reformatted and used a different
  floppy, just to make sure. It seems that even if I use a boot
  argument like "root=/dev/fd0h1200" to try and force the issue, the
  system still tries to use fd0h1440. Anyway, it's no big thing. The
  system already has RedHat loaded, I just wanted to play with Debian
  1.2 and then repartition. It can wait.

  Thanks for the suggestion, anyway.
