I've encountered the same problem with 1.4.1's and current's installation
floppy (kernel *without* PS/2 mouse driver) on a Pentium system with an
ASUS T2P4 (Intel HX chipset). The strange thing is that exactly the same
floppy disks works fine on another system with exactly the same motherboard.
I wonder if it could be related to the keyboard switch to which the failing
box is connected.
