N/A, but it's a SUN SparcStation 5
This error occures i'm trying to install NetBSD-2.0 on my SparcStation 5,
when i'm trying to load instfs.tgz from floppy #2.
gzip: stdin not in gzip format
and then a few errors from tar.
i've tried writing the image to the disk using rawritexp, dd on NetBSD/i386 and dd on NetBSD/sparc. with and without bs=36k conv=sync.
1) Boot from disk one.
2) Choose floppy to load the installation.
3) Insert disk two.
