Description of Problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'rawrite' located in CD1->dosutils and copy 'drivers.img' to a
The floppy disk becomes unreadable after the step above completes.
Drivers.img gets copied to the floppy disk
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
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?
1474560 is exactly 1.44 MB (1474560 / 1024 = 1440)
You can not read the floppy under Windows, it is only readable from Linux.
