Hi!


I was asked why I cannot put FreeDOS on a floppy. Here is the reason. I
just tried another floppy disk that I found. It is original from before
1995, so it may be broken. I can try to check on my 486 once it is up
and running, but for now this is what I get on Linux when I put the disk
into the USB floppy drive.

I don't really expect help here. It is just a message to get the
understand for why I cannot load FreeDOS onto a floppy at this time.


Happy 2017!
