Trying to boot from CD on an 164lx.
to a CD-RW using cdrecord, read the data back, compared
the bits, and checked the md5 checksum against the md5
I can mount the CD.
But it will not boot:
(boot dqb0.0.1.11.0 -file netbsd -flags A)
block 0 of dqb0.0.1.11.0 is a valid boot block
reading 172 blocks from dqb0.0.1.11.0
failed to read dqb0.0.1.11.0
A Redhat Linux iso gives the same results.
A FreeBSD iso says that block 0 isn't a valid boot block.
I don't see any magic step in http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/bootcd.html
that I have left out.
SRM doesn't say *why* it failed to read dqb...
I/O error? File not found? Incorrect Phase of Moon?
