} Is this still a problem? The bootloader's changed quite a bit since 1.6.

     Old Thinkpads didn't like the 2.88 floppy image El Torito boot
method used in the past (it appeared to only support 1.44 floppy
image).  I have this problem with my Thinkpad.  The newer style CD boot
works fine for me.  Looking at all the details in the PR, it appears
this was the problem.  This PR can probably be closed as, even if the
problem isn't solved, it is a BIOS bug.
