The transfer rate was around 64 K/s.
Anyone can instrust me how to build a boot image? I tried one to build a custom one
with the following steps..
dd if=/dev/zero of=customboot.fs count=5760
vnconfig -t floppy288 -v -c /dev/vnd0d customboot.fs
disklabel -rw /dev/vnd0d floppy288
newfs -B le -m 0 -o space -i 204800 -c 80 /dev/rvnd0a floppy288
/usr/mdec/installboot -v -f /usr/mdec/biosboot.sym /dev/rvnd0a
mount /dev/vnd0a /mnt
gzip -c -9 /usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/CUSTOMBOOT/netbsd > /mnt/netbsd
chmod a+x /mnt/netbsd
vnconfig -u vnd0d
mkisofs -o customboot.iso -b customboot.fs -c boot.catalog -a -l -J -r -L /cdresources
I tried to boot the cd.. but it said no file system found as it tried to mount fd0a as root
partition... I did not know how to fix it..
Please direct me some useful information how to build snapshot or custom boot cd.
I read on the following URL:
