I want to boot my 5000/260 via RX23 floppy in this way:

  I have a NetBSD-1.4/i386. What I did:

	# fdformat -C 160
	# disklabel -W /dev/rfd0c
	# gunzip -c /NetBSD-1.4.1/pmax/installation/diskimage/diskimage.gz |
		dd of=/dev/rfd0c bs=10240

  I got this:

dd: /dev/rfd0c: end of device
 0+301 records in
 0+300 recored out
	1228800 bytes transfered in 39 secs(31507 bytes/sec)
Broken pipe

  What's wrong?

  Thank you!
