System: NetBSD 1.1A NetBSD 1.1A (NIKITA) #3: Wed Feb 14 15:34:27 MET 1996 i386

	Note:  This machine has 32MB ram, but because it also has an
Adaptec 1542B I'm running with a patch that disables the ram above 16MB.
I don't think this problem is related but I'm not familiar enough with
PC hardware to say for sure.

	I was going to make a NetBSD 1.1 boot diskette, but the machine
	crashes instead.

	Get (for example) inst-11.fs from in /tmp, then do:

# dd if=inst-11.fs of=/dev/rfd0a bs=9k

	I get the same panic every time.  I've included most of the call stack:

panic: disk.unbusy: fd0: dk_busy < 0
stopped in _Debugger+0x4: leave
db> t

	I have no idea.
