Are they the floppy contents? Floppy & CD mount OK now, however even though the floppy mounts OK, when I mount the floppy, I get: 127# mount -v -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt /dev/fd0 on /mnt (msdos, local, reads: sync 2 async 0) floppy: mount -v -t msdos /dev/fd0c /mnt CDROM: mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0c /cdrom However, I can't seem to unmount them. I get "Command not found". 127# unmount /cdrom unmount: Command not found. > > When I run partition magic in Win2000, its says that I have a BAD > > partition.

PM is saying the whole primary parition(both Windows 2000 + FBSD) is BAD(nothing to do with surface errors) I can't remember where I read it(BSD site or book, will look later) but when you make the slices, the sizes must add up to a certain divisable number, otherwise part of the partition(small number like 1024kb) will be unusable. Thats why PM is saying that the whole partition is BAD. But I don't know how to fix this ??? Kind Regards, DK __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
