right, if you are trying to copy the image directly to a fat16 (windows format) floppy disk, you might run out of room because the fat16 fs takes up some space on the disk. Also, the disks might be bad and be covered with bad sectors that you can't use. Make sure you are doing it the right way and try some other disks too. The last time I installed, I had to boot from floppy and went through about 4 or 5 disks before I had enough good ones.
