You mean you are using a floppy to boot a machine
then you install using FTP ?

Have you tried to drop into shell (control and Z) and
manually download the misc.tgz and test it (using gzip -t).

If it's OK, try to decompress it to your destination

unzip ; strip ; touch ; grep ; finger ; mount ; fsck ; more ; yes ;
fsck ; umount ; sleep
