Need Help!-Warp 4 installation woes

I recently changed motherboards from a Tyan 1590 to a s1598. I wanted to
have a clean install of OS/2. I used my Warp updated disks, but when I
got through install disk 1, the floppy LED is blinking with or without
any floppy inserted, and when I insert disk 2, there shows up 2 pages of
some kind of error in CONFIG.SYS and then everything stops with an error
message about that OS/2 can’t read a disk/floppy. I used the CDINST file
from the CD to make new installation disks, but the same thing happened.
Anyone encountered this before?
Thanks in advance.

    Hi Mike
    Your problem is that the OS starts using the loaded drivers. ie the
    drivers that you loaded from the floppies.
    Your copy of IBM1FLPY.ADD is cactus( for non micro-channel machines,
    IBM2FLPY.ADD for micro-channel ones).
    Also make sure that there is a BASEDEV=IBM1FLPY.ADD statement in the
    config.sys file

    Regards Dennis.

    >Thanks Dennis, but for some reason, the AIC7895 driver was the culprit.

    It is an Adaptec SCSI driver, but I have no SCSI card. Nonetheless, when
    the statement was REM’ed (;) from the snoop.lst, things went smooth
    until the serial.snp statement. When I REM’ed this out also, I was able
    to continue the installation. Once the installation was
    complete, the serial.snp statement was put back to it’s original and the
    system is running well.
    However, with that said, the Actiontec modem fails when with ‘PPP driver
    failure, communication error’. There have been few postings
    concerning trouble in OS/2 with this modem. When I engage the Full
    Hardware Detection, again the system will hang on the serial.snp file.
    There must be a hardware conflict with the COM ports, but the BIOS is
    set to
    Serial#1, 3f8, irq4 (COM1); Serial #2, 2f8, irq3 (COM2)
