And NetBSD had me thinking they used a clever 
way of squeezing extra data onto a diskette 
... but it's only an oversight in making the image.  
Any chance of putting a notice somewhere obvious so 
others avoid wasting time?

OK, I might.  Might also get a CD drive to work 
and proceed with 5.0.2.  I've become quite wary of 
testing systems after experiencing many headaches 
with Debian Squeeze testing.

I'll send a message when the system is running or 
sooner if necessary.

Thanks for answering my questions.
