Hmm.. I'm wondering if Linux is seeing the LS120 and considering it an
IDE device -- therefore the boot floppy is trying to mount /dev/fd0
(which may not really exist), instead of /dev/hd<whatever>

If that's true, I think the easiest way to get around it would be to try
and boot off a CD-ROM..  There may be some other methods..
