I was searching through the list archives and found a reference
to why I might be having some problems with disk1 booting.
Basically, I've dd'ed my images just as the install.txt file
states. at the Openboot rev 2.22 I type "boot floppy" and get:
ok boot floppy
Boot device: /obio/SUNW,fdtwo File and args: netbsd
Can't read disk label.
Can't open Sun disk label package
Can't open boot device
In the old post the author states his floppy drive was bad. I'll
give that a shot (I can't remember when the drive was last used).
Still, I don't believe it to be the case.
I also tried 'boot.fs' with a 'boot floppy netbsd.gz' but had no
luck. Same message.
Is there a trick for this?
