I'm trying to install using the boot floopy I made according to the web
page. The flopy works great and install works well until I get to the fpt
section. At this point, I'm not sure what to put into the ppp info screen. I
have an isp that has no Unix Shell access, just a regular PPP account. Since
it's a dialup, my ip is assigned dynamicly. Anyway, here's a sample of the
info I put into the boxes:

host :
domain :
dns : (whatever my DNS # is ...i don't remember it right this second)

for gateway, I don't know what to put and for the ip, I put 0

anyway... I get to the terminal screen and dial up my ISP ok, then I enter
my user name and password and get to PPP where it gives me my ip address. At
this point, I press Alt-F3 oto get back to the installer and I immediately
get an error that the ftp site can't be found.

I was wondering if :

a) I'm doing something wrong in the setup?
b) I can ftp the files on another machine and put them onto my machine on an
NT NTFS drive (I'm trying to set up a dual boot)

c) the dual boot thing will work ok with the NT boot selector...

thank you, and if you need any other information, please let me know...
