That's a tad caustic, don't you think?
I bet it's the devil logo that's screwing him up. We should change it.
FWIW, I have managed to get 5.2.1 to install on a LAM test system (ironic?) at work, once I set the CDROM to master on it's own channel (I had to remove the jumpter to install 4.9 because it crashed at boot until I did; 5.2.1 crashed at boot until I set it to the opposite way). I had burned the 2 meg install floppy to a small CD to install it after checking the MD5 sums.
It sounds like your install images or floppies were bad. I'd doublecheck the MD5's and if they check out, re-image some floppies (or try putting it on a CD...they tend to be more resilient).
