thinkpad 750, 2.88Mb fd, 82077 fdc, 20Mb memory, docking station, wd8003e enet, 170Mb disk
System: NetBSD anger 1.0 NetBSD 1.0 (ANGER) #3: Mon Oct 31 00:52:14 EST 1994 moore@anger:/mnt/netbsd/tp750/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ANGER i386

	When trying to install netbsd 1.0 on a thinkpad 750, the system
	hangs during the install procedure a few seconds after the
	install script prints
	"Populating filesystems with bootstrapping binaries and config
	The floppy disk light is on when the machine gets wedged and
	it remains on.
	(first, patch boot/disk.c to test for a 36 sector/track floppy
	and act as if it were 18 sectors/track...install that boot program
	on a netbsd kernel-copy disk, then try to install netbsd normally)
