I was trying to create boot floppies for NetBSD 1.5.1. (boot1.fs & boot2.fs)
First I have formated floppies with fdformat -f /dev/fd0a
Then I used dd utility to write image on floppies(from another NetBSD 1.5.1
dd if=/dev/fd0a of=./boot1.fs
result looked ok
2880+0 records in
2880+0 records out
When I try to boot my computer with them(ancient 486) it's telling me it's
not a boot disk.
Am I doing anything wrong? Isn't it a right way to do boot floppies?
And one more thing that I don't understand. After writing boot disk with dd
md5 checksum changes on original image file I wrote from (on both boot1.fs
and boot2.fs) . Can someone explain to me why it changes?
