Installing Xenix (again)

Does anyone know the procedure for installing Xenix? When booting from the Xenix boot floppy I get the following message:

"No single User login present
Entering System Maintenance Mode"

>From there I can Initialize the HD, or upgrade from Xenix 2.3 to 3.0
I have initialized my drive using the 'Xenix boot floppy', but I don't know what to do after that!!! I would have thought that next I would have been prompted to insert the next floppy. The boot disk is ejected and there is an onscreen prompt "Normal System Shutdown", keystrokes are unrecognized and Inserting the next floppy seems to do nothing. The only thing I can do is push the 'off' button. Upon restart, the Lisa sees the initialized drive, and there is a screen that says 'boot:', just like there is with the boot floppy, and as with the boot floppy. Pressing 'return' prompts for the boot floppy 'fd(2.0)xenix'. Inserting the boot floppy gets me back to where I started.

Any thoughts
