Problems with memory with ISC 2.0.2

I was working on a problem with a friend's 386 running ISC 2.0.2

Basically, we were having trouble getting it to work properly
with 8 Meg or RAM.  The initial installation with the default
settings worked just fine, but after going through kconfig and
telling it that he has 8 Megs and rebuilding the kernel, everything
looked OK until we tried to build a filesystem on his 1.2 Meg floppy!

It said that it wasn't the proper type S51 or something like that.
We reconfigured the system again back to 2 Meg, and the floppy

Is this a bug, or are we doing something wrong?

By the way, he is running a 25Mhz 386 with NO cache, AMI bios,
8 Meg of RAM, 200 Meg Connor hard drive, VGA and the other usual
stuff.  He does have a Microsoft mouse attached, but it's not
configured in ISC unix, because there doesn't seem to be a driver
for the serial mouse.
