Good catch! Thanks!


FreeCom version 0.84-preXMS_Swap [Sep 25 2005 15:16:48]
Error reading from drive C: DOS area: general failure
(A)bort, (I)gnore, (R)etry, (F)ail?


When there is time, will try the installation to /dev/sda1 
again, using the current installer.

Incidentally, this machine has FreeDOS on /dev/sdb1 and 
PC Native Oberon, Alpha, 2003-01-05 on /dev/sda2.  
/dev/sda is a spinning drive and /dev/sdb is a Compact 
Flash card.  Bluebottle BootMan is installed and has 
no problem starting either of the two working OSs. 
Oberon and BootMan are available from the ETHZ server.

Regards,             ... Peter E.
