Explain how you switch from booting winme to booting FBSD

I've yet to learn how to tell the bootloader to boot from the primary drive, so I just change the order of the drives in BIOS.

Verify floppy drive works in winme.

And there's the answer--I believe this drive is dead. I recall it making noises some time ago, and it must've gone over the edge. Fortunately, Atlanta has some good stores--I've been wanting to pop down to the one by Tech for a while now, and this is as good an excuse as any.

This brings me back to the modem question. I can type in the entries from ppp.conf and ppp.log--or I suppose I could try to learn to write to the FAT partition elsewhere on this drive, which I'm not unwilling to do (shouldn't be hard, which is what I thought about the modem.)

Advice? And thanks again,

John A
