FreeBSD 4.2, PC 512MMB RAM, 2- HD 60 & 40 Mb.
System found in indeterminate state, assumed power failure
problem. Several reboot and boot attempts failed.
Re-installed O/S, system came back up, data intact on 2nd HD
but not seen in fstab file, remount etc. OK smooth running,
Doing a tar xf from a CDROM, system went into a "block size"
error, starting a "disc sync" mode followed by a "reboot"
condition but never came back up.
Seems as if Win start up disk required in floppy drive and
FreeBSD distr. Disk 1 reqd. in cdrom for a "boot"
Any idea of what could be causing this and possible solution(s)
