System: NetBSD chriss-pc 1.5 NetBSD 1.5 (GENERIC) #1: Wed Nov 29 00:29:52 MET 2000 root@flambard:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/GENERIC sparc

It is not possible to put the floppy-image fdisk2.fs for NetBSD-1.5/sparc
via dd onto a floppy, because of the size.
dd if=diks2.fs of=/dev/fd0 # on FreeBSD, but NetBSD 1.4/sparc has the
# same problem, this is not the fault of dd
cat disk2.fs /dev/zero | dd of=disk2a.fs bs=1 count=1474560
# make an image with proper size.
