Description Johannes Dharmawan 2001-08-16 02:21:49 EDT
Description of Problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'rawrite' located in CD1->dosutils and copy 'drivers.img' to a 
floppy disk

Actual Results:
The floppy disk becomes unreadable after the step above completes.

Expected Results:
Drivers.img gets copied to the floppy disk

Additional Information:
The problem looks like the size of the drivers.img exceeds the maximum 
capacity of a 1.44 MB floppy disk. This problem also occurs when you are 
doing 'rawrite' on pcmciadd.img
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-08-16 10:28:58 EDT
This has worked for us in all of our testing.  The size of the *.img files are
fine.  I wonder why it's not working for you...

The size of all the *.img files are supposed to be 1474560 bytes.  What is the
size of the one you see on the cd?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-08-16 10:39:18 EDT
1474560 is exactly 1.44 MB (1474560 / 1024 = 1440)

You can not read the floppy under Windows, it is only readable from Linux.
