Hmmm, the problem is most likely with the data, the floppy, or the tool that writes the data. Do you have access to a Linux machine? (you don't have tell anyone ;-) How about writing a floppy of your data on the Linux machine to make sure that, given the same data, Linux creates a bootable floppy. Then we can probably say that the way that "cat" works on Linux differs from what happens on FreeBSD. If you email me the files I will be happy to create a floppy with them and test it on my Linux test system. I plan to build a FreeBSD system soon so that I can test this directly. I would also like to write a chapter on "Using Etherboot with FreeBSD" for my book. I'd be grateful to hear about your experiences. Regards, Marty --- Name: Martin D.
