|Perhaps because the boot floppy that you are using is from DSL v0.8 and the I am suggesting, and works for me, is from DSL v2.3. The new standard boot floppy was announced in the change log for DSL v2.3|
BTW, I dug out an old copy of V0.8 usb bootfloppy and I get a failure when trying to boot from write protected pendrive.
Obviously, I was using an old bootfloppy.
The last bootfloppy which i have made was done by using any RC of DSL 2.3 or maybe an even earlier version. At this time, there were two different versions available (usb-bootfloppy and a standard bootfloppy). I was always using the usb-bootfloppy, as it worked fine, as long as no write-protected usb-pen has been used in connection with the bootfloppy.
Today, I have made a new boot flopy with DSL 3.1 RC3.
With this, I have tried the same as before with 2 different usb-pens. In the command line from the bootfloppy boot, I have typed in the following "dsl fromusb".
I AM HAPPY! I THINK IT WORKS NOW FINALLY!
I have to do some further tests and verify that the write-protection switch was really set, but everything was ok with the first tests.
Now I am looking for the final release of DSL 3.1 before I will re-install my usb-pen. Hope it will be ready soon
Thanks for your information and your help, roberts
