Hi, Glen:

Usually, this means a mismatch between the iso image version and the
boot floppy version. The psyche images are definitely the right ones, so
the question becomes where did you get the boot floppy image?
Unfortunately, we have not put them up on the speakup site--mainly
because we never intended to keep the psyche iso images around as all of
this is now fully supported by Red Hat.

I guess you might have used the links in the HOWTO to create the boot
floppies? That would be my fault for not thinking that through earlier.
Those links are also to the oder version. I'm very sorry to put you
through that. Fortunately, downloading a floppy diskette image isn't
anywhere near the trial of downloading a full CD ROM's worth of data.

Why not try an official Red Hat mirror site? Here are a few to choose
