        I have seen these before. As Michele and Pat suggest, you might
want to try a new floppy. However, if the floppy works fine on the other
boxen, then the floppy unit (the one with the cables and the green
light) might be knackered. You could connect another disk drive and
install mulinux, clone onto the HD and live happily ever after. I don't
think this is a mulinux specific problem, more of a hardware failure
somewhere along the line.
