HDDriver is not necessary here. I just started with an empty HD and the
hades-boot.fs and the sysinst.fs floppies. That was all I needed.

At this point, I see the creation of the filesystems... I entered exactly the
same data as you did above. My disk size was slightly different, but that was
all (4110 blocks total). I had hoped to be able to reproduce it :-(
There is no further message except 'sysinst terminated' ?
If you type ^D at the prompt, you'll should be able to start from the
beginning. Does this work better/different? Did you see errors while reading
the sysinst floppy perhaps?
