Description of problem:
After installation of redhat 8.0.93 the installation prompts to create a boot
floppy, wich i chose to do.
The tool tries to create a boot floppy but afterwards it gives the message:
"Your boot floppy appears to be invalid. This is likely due to a bad floppy.
Please make sure you have inserted a good floppy in the first floppy drive."
I tried different floppies and it always gave me the same error. I know at least
some of them are perfect, but still the installer produces the error.
I also did 2 installs (same machine), both had the same problem.
When i try to boot from the floppy, it seems to load correctly at first, but
then stops loading.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install or upgrade to phoebe on my box
2. answer yes to create a boot floppy
3. wait for the error messages
Actual Results: Your boot floppy appears to be invalid. This is likely due to a
bad floppy. Please make sure you have inserted a good floppy in the first floppy
And obviously i can't boot from the floppy
Expected Results: I expected to have a good boot floppy
I posted it in this category because i could'nt find the installation category
please move my post to the right category if there is one, otherwise creating an
installation category would be nice
This is fixed in CVS
