Re: port-i386/45704: Floppy install fails to load //ffs/ffs.kmod and reboots


some additional information.  This problem might actually be
unrelated to the floppy install stuff.  I dumped a MONOLITHIC
(5.99.56) kernel into the existing root file system on the
machine, updated the boot blocks, and rebooted.  I interrupted
the boot loader, got to the boot loaded prompt and redirected the
console to the serial port.  The log from the boot attempt

>> NetBSD/x86 BIOS Boot, Revision 5.9 (from NetBSD 5.99.56)

Loading /stand/i386/5.99.56/modules/ffs/ffs.kmod  

and then the system spontanously rebooted.  The ffs.kmod file
does really exist at the path printed out above.  I have tried
with various combinations of the -1, -2 and -s flags to the
kernel, but the combination seems to make no difference.  Any
suggestions for what I should try next?
