Well cannot believe I'm in trouble already.
I am trying to "renovate" an IPX. It is/was running NetBSD 1.4.1 and I'm
basically planning to stick in a new disk an load on 2.0.2 from scratch.
Anyway, have used rawrite to create the two boot floppies. The first is in
and I just type "boot floppy" at the OpenBoot prompt and things look to be
I get Booting netbsd, but after a little while (and the spinning progress
bar) I then get:
"Cannot load netbsd: error=79"
I've tried to goggle this, but the only things similar seem to relate too
the root disk, which suggested that maybe this is a floppy read error?
Any pointers as to next steps appreciated.
