Description R P Herrold 2001-02-03 18:18:05 EST
Making boot images  

[root@dhcp244 images]# dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=512
2880+0 records in
2880+0 records out
[root@dhcp244 images]# dd if=drivers.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=512
2704+0 records in
2704+0 records out
Q: What is your first impression?     
A: Oops -- bad floppy -- did not write a 'full' image
Actually filesize is not the customary 1474560
Just on the principle of 'least surprise', a filler is probably in
order on 'small' images ...
