V2.0 release has 3 floppy images for the alpha.  I've written all three successfully using RAWRITE.  The first floppy boots, asks for the second and chugs along.  It then reports "Read text: Input/output error" and begins looking for 9 versions of the kernel (netbsd.gz, netbsd.bak, netbsd.bak.gz.....).  It never asks for the third floppy. Am I missing something here?
