System: NetBSD cowboy-burt 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (COWBOY-BURT) #1: Sat Oct 2 21:08:08 EDT 1999 dan@cowboy-burt:/amd/dinah-moe/export/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/COWBOY-BURT sparc


The boot floppy image at:

doesn't work with mkhybrid due to the image being the wrong size.  This prevents me from making a
bootable cd-rom


mkdir -p cdfiles/i386
rsync -e ssh -vax --delete --exclude 'Split' .

cd ../..

mkhybrid -o myimage.iso -b i386/installation/floppies/boot-big.fs  -c boot.catalog -J -r -a -l -L  cdfiles

now see it say:
Size of boot image is 3816 sectors -> 
Error - boot image is not the an allowable size.
