|Ok, I admit it I forgot how to create a 1.7Mb boot floppy. I tryed dd if=bootfloppy.img of=/dev/fd0 and get the no space left message. I also tried dd if=bootfloppy.img of=/dev/fd0u1680 and that just sends records in and out somewhere. |
What's the trick guys?
Sorry for replying late, been busy building picture frames
i think I formatted it like this:
and when you mount it also mount it using the same device:
mount /dev/fd0u1722 /mnt/floppy
And the "edit minirt24" thing I found here:
(Way down on the page, search for minirt24 and you'll find it...)
Its a bit of a struggle to figure out what to remove in order to fit it on a floppy, but it was doable, for me at least. My picture frame is on the wall, and I'm not swapping floppies in order to boot dsl "frompcmcia".
Good luck to anyone who wants to try. Floppies need to be perfect to format them to 1.7M - i went through 5-6 old floppies before I found one that was good enough.
