hello, i'm beginning in the FreeBSD world, and i can't mount my floppy disk and my Win98 hard disk.
i tape: # mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s1 /hdibm or: # mount -t msdos /dev/fd0.1440 /floppy and i get "Bus error" and a core file. my Win98 disk is bootable (only 1 partition - FAT32, 12.6 Go) and connected in master to the primary IDE. my floppy is a classic 1.44 Mo and i want to read MSDOS formated floppies. of course i have the 2 special files in /dev, and i created the mount directories. i have access to these disks with fsck_msdosfs or disklabel. i followed all the procedure to format and mount a new MSDOS floppy disk but i always have this error. i haven't these problems with my CDROM and my bootable FreeBSD disk. for information i can reproduce this error when i try to mount one of my FreeBSD partition as a MSDOS partition ( # mount -t msdos /dev/ad3s1g /tmp ). (i'm under FreeBSD 4.7) does somebody know how to resolve this problem? thank you! To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
