Description R. James Cross, Jr. 2000-08-18 12:52:41 UTC
I did an upgrade from v 6.0 to 6.2. The program asked for a floppy disk to write the boot on. I inadvertantly used the
previous boot disk, which was write-locked. I got no warning or chance to write enable the disk. The installation stopped
and would not continue and had to be redone. Every other installation that I have ever done, puts up a warning message
and a button to retry the write.
