yesterday I have compiled mtools-2.0.7 on my new installed
NetBSD-1.1 (I switched from NetBSD-Amiga).

If I try to copy a file to disk I get an error

Device "/dev/fd0a" is busy

mcopy a:file /tmp  works without any problem.
I have tried all lockmethods.

Then I have downloaded the precompiled package of mtools from, but here happens just the same error.

During the install process I got errors like 

/netbsd: fdcresult: timeout
fd0a: soft error reading fsbn 19

any suggestions ??

my system: Pentium-133, Asus P55TP4N, ASUS-SC200-SCSI-CARD (NCR53c810)
