Re: Making a floppy fails?

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.
