OK, after booting off the first 'diagnostics disk', the system looks like
its booting - it clears for a second and then displays a few numbers, and
halts with 'c05' -- "A diskette error occurred" on the screen. I've
verified that the image is properly getting written to the floppy, and
have tried different floppies.

Any ideas?
