I have used this particular floppy to boot several other things (much larger images, actually). The FreeBSD bootloader is fairly explicit about media errors when it encounters them. I have also tried two different floppies already. This is (roughly) what I'm getting (cut 'n paste from my serial console card): AX:0211 BX:0000 CX:0002 DX:0000. 8X:0211 CX:0002 8000 BX:0002 DX:0000. 8000 AX:0211 BX:0000 CX:0002 DX:0000. 8000 AX:0211 DX:0000 AX:0211 CX:0002 8000 BX:0000 BX:0000 CX:0002 DX:0000. ... any hints?
