O.K I looked and looked for Alternitive Links for feather Linux until My eyes blead! but to no avail. Ias a conciquence I would like to reccomend puppy Linux it is just Like feather only better. Can you boot from usb?

because if so you can just D/L the USB image and boot from USB

If not visit here:

if that doesn't work here is a link with Alternate Floppy Distros:

Hope this Helps,

i found the floppy boot image, and got that fixed, but now im having another problem. My computer goes to the Feather linux boot screen correctly. I hit enter to boot it, and it says this:
Loading Linux24.................
(after about 20 sec. it says this)
Boot Failed: please change disks and press a key to continue
