I don't know him personally. It seems like the machine has been an oversized
paperweight for a long time though, judging from a usenet post of him:
. It's possible he booted from the wrong cdrom. I mailed him and asked if he
could try booting from a freshly-dd'd linux floppy :) . Such a floppy doesn't
try to access nonexistant disks.
