In the vein of getting a way to install FreeBSD 7.1-BETA2 onto my SATA IDE drive (otherwise still running 5.2.1. from IDE drives) I found in the seek of other methods to bootstrap myself, that the boot floppy hangs after asking for kern1 floppy. Could that be just bad media or could it have another cause. In other words: Has anyone tried to boot from a 7.1-BETA2 floppy set recently?

Other suggestion of how to bootstrap me from 5.2.1 to 7.1 are welcome:

Doing a cvs-sup ? (Is there still this method of updating FreeBSD? - I've been a while off from the front) Making my SATA drive (/dev/ar0) bootable and putting the contents of the distribution into it?
