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
of course i have the 2 special files in /dev, and i created the mount
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

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!
