Well, I didn't care (yet!) to give it some more tries to see if the PC is
reproducable... IIRC it has been '0' when trying to boot from the tape. So
far I've booted the 1.3.2 "install132.fs" image (all the way up to the
install script) and 1.3.3 (i/o error while loading the kernel - probably a
bad floppy). Then my FreeBSD box paniced while writing the 1.4 boot images
to a floppy :-(. But since 1.3.3 went all the way through first and second
stage boot loader it is almost 100% more than what I get when using the
I'll keep up trying the remaining images until I can pin-point it to the
boot code on the 1.4.1 floppies ;-)
