Hi Christopher,

I have also downloaded the beta 9 floppy diskette images for installation on my Compaq LTE5000 laptop. I am having the same problem ("some files are missing" message after selecting floppy installation option) that you are. Does anyone have any further info about this problem, and a solution?

I just downloaded the beta 9 floppy diskette images the other day. I am installing onto a Toshiba Libretto 110CT which only has a floppy drive attachment. The boot disk works just fine and it even went so far as to properly format the hard drive and create a DOS partition. It also seems to have done a proper installation of a barebones bootable DOS on the hard drive.

So far, so good.

However, running the installer on the boot disk (which will presumably prompt for the other installer disks so I can get more robust functionality) produces a full page of text that goes by far too quickly to read. The following screen says that "some files are missing" and aborts the installation. Presumably the installer is referring to itself, not my hard drive.

Anyone have any ideas, or is the current floppy installer beta known to have this issue?
