I have an AMD K6 based system with almost everything on ultra-wide, ultra-fast SCSI. The exceptions are video, sound and floppy disk. The IDE floppy disk works fine if, for example, I boot from it on this machine. Further, I have removed it and tested it on a Windows 2K system, where it works just fine. However, when I boot FreeBSD (version 5.1), I get the following messages in dmseg:
fdc0: cannot reserve I/O port range (1 ports) fdc0: cannot reserve I/O port range (1 ports) fdc0: cannot reserve I/O port range (6 ports) and, of course, the floppy isn't available. Any suggestions about what may be wrong here and how to go about making it work? Floppy drives are inexpensive, and I don't mind getting a new one if there's something wrong with the hardware, but I don't understand why it works on other systems and why the same system can boot from it. This just seems very bizarre, and I'm stumped. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
