Description klwood 1999-10-12 19:23:57 UTC
System: AMD Athalon 600MHz
3DLabs Oxygen 96MB Video Card
Intraserver Symbios Logic 53c895 SCSI
Kingston 10/100MB NIC
IBM 9.1 SCSI Drive
Toshiba 40X IDE
Sony Floppy

When booting the bootnet.img for 6.1, the following message appears:
initrd loads fine then it issues a message stating that:

Boot failed: please change disks and press any key to continue.

It would appear that vmlinuz is missing.

You should remake your boot disk, as there is a problem with the
diskette itself.
