Im trying to install NetBSD on my machine, I made the install disks(the 2 main ones), and the installation wanted to install from files on floppys, for one, I dont have alot of floppys and another, I dont want to spend alot of time putting the split sets on floppys. I want to be able to install the sets from my HARD DRIVE or when I get a CD burner, from CDs. Im currently running Windows 98, which would be FAT32(but you probably already know that).

Just make the first 2 boot disks and only use them.

Im not sure how to fix this problem, Im hoping someone could e-mail me with the solution as well as update the database of bugs.
