Hm.... well, I did a full scsi install here on an adaptec controller
(aic7xxx driver) and it's a good news / bad news sort of thing - the
good news is that it all went fine, and booted right up. The bad news
is I didn't reproduce your error. :)
I'll take a look at what anaconda is doing... perhaps there is a problem
Also, I'm not surprised that the boot floppy creation failed - kernel +
xfs + scsi driver is getting pretty big... I guess we should disable
that or at least offer a warning if we can't make it fit.
