Correct curaga ... waitusb works and enables me to boot from the usb drive. I did a lot of searching prior to asking. Perhaps there's some documentation or additional cheat codes somewhere that I am not aware of.
As for the floppy image, I suspected the floppy size was the problem because of the size of the image, Juanito. Seeing that DSL-N has the floppy tool with an option to format 1722 MB disks, I tried that. All I could get is an access prohibited message. Maybe I need root privilege to use the floppy tool? How do I do that in DSL-N?
I did manage to access the floppy via root with the superformat tool, however it apparently does not complete the format properly because it cannot find mformat. Seems to do the low format portion okay but not the msdos filesystem portion.
I tried doing the task in Fedora and it has neither superformat or mformat available and they are not available in their repositories either. Perhaps they are tools in a package?
