One reason being able to boot FreeBSD doesn't guarantee the floppy is error free is because the FreeBSD boot process might not access all the initial blocks of the floppy but may skip around to different areas. Etherboot's floppyload.bin loads all 32kB following sector 0. To be surer of success, format and verify the floppy. I have seen floppy disks lose their formatting after a month of two of storage. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Ken Yap <email@example.com> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
