Re: [K12OSN] HD boot-Format 1722kb floppy on Fedora Core 2

Hi Les

It worked... kinda...
When I boot it now says Loading ROM image.. and then a row of numbers repeated over and over. BUT at least I know now how to copy the floppy to the hard drive. If I reboot with the same floppy still in, then it boots up as a client. But it doesn't seem to like it copied to the hard drive. I'll go back to rom-o-matic and try the other rom images...

Thanks for the tip.

I've never done that stuff myself, so take my advice with a pinch of
whatever. However, if you were trying to copy the contents of the floppy to
the hard drive, the command should be

cat /dev/fd0 > /dev/hda

and you shouldn't see any rubbish on the screen. You could also use the dd

dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/dev/hda

See if that helps. . .
