I have an Ibm Thinkpad 560x with usb cd and extern floppydrive. I have copied whole installation cd no 1 onto the harddisk via windows98 and the usb cd port.
Then I have booted with kern.flp and mfsroot.flp, and set everything up with sysinstall. I have used relevant tools, and made a partition for windows of some 1.7 gb, and some 4.5 gb for freebsd. I have used fdisk and made the freebsd slice 2 bootable, and with disk label editor set following up: /windows 1.7 gb ad0s1 / 256 mb ad0s2a swap 256 mb ad0s2b /var 1000 mb ad0s2d /usr 2000 mb ad0s2e Case 1. When I then start the installation via dos media, I get following messages: error mounting /dev/ad0s1 on /dist. Case 2. Then I have formatted some 36 floppied, and copied all /freebsd/base filed onto those floppies. When I start the installation via floppy media, i get following message: No floppy devices found! Please check that your system's configuration is correct. For more information ........ I have spend some 2 weeks on this project, reading the Handbook, and searched freebsd.org mailing archive, but cannot find any solution! If somebody please could help, I would be very grateful *smiling* :-) Regards [EMAIL PROTECTED] (My name is Niels, living in Sweden) _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
