Or at least it’s supposed to; on a different machine it might actually work. For me, however, I was plagued by a strange looping error where the message “INFO kbd-mode setting console mode to Unicode” spun past the installer forever.
CTRL-C wouldn’t stop it (and occasionally would make the installer segfault) and no other key had any effect. Apparently it’s something that happens to others too, but without more information than that, I’m afraid I had to delay that attempt.
And with only two floppies in the whole house, writing and rewriting them was becoming a chore.
But it’s a shame, really. I was curious to see how it would go, and what it could do. I’ll think about it for another day or so, and then try again. This might be worth the effort.
