I see the same errors on a new Gigabyte 430HX board. Fortunately, the
kernel doesn't hang but gets mostly soft errors reading the floppy. I
was able to get enough of the installation binaries on the harddisk to
continue with the installation.
I have the problems with both 1.2 and with -current as of 2 weeks ago.
The supplier mumbled something about the "floppy mode 3" being a known
source for this type of problem. Disabling that mode in the BIOS
setup didn't change anything, though.

You don't need to quote my .signature. Everyone has seen it by now.
Besides, it doesn't add anything to the current thread.
