I bought a boxed L2 recently with everything in great shape for dirt cheap. AFAIK the floppies are working fine, but trying to install on any machine, I end up waiting at a screen telling me it's making anL2.ini file. The system is responsive (keyboard still does stuff), but it just seems to hang. Is it a long wait?

lol well you could always wait and let us know. What operating system are you running the install from? What operating system does the box imply it would work with?

No, it is a very small file and should be created almost instaneously. There is a known bug in creating the file if trying to install on a FAT32 drive under Win9x. It is likely that bug would also occur in certain other conditions. My solution to this was to create a smaller (<500MB) partition that was formatted for FAT16 and not compressed and install programs there.
