Description Joe Ceklosky 1999-05-12 10:15:27 EDT
When installing from a floppy based boot disk, 6.0 fails to
write out the kernel image to a floppy.  I manually dd'ed
out the kernel during the install.  My guess it that it's
doing the following, which is WRONG:

dd if=/mnt/boot/vmwhater of=/dev/fd0

where it should be:

dd if=/mnt/boot/vmwhatever of=/mnt/dev/fd0

this is fixed in the latest mkbootdisk in Raw Hide, IIRC.
