I have made a boot floppy rather than booting from the hard drive. All
my attempts to read the contents of the drive in order to insert boot
parameters has failed. When the floppy is mounted the dialog returned is
"/dev/fd0 is not a valid block device." I mount using mount /dev/fdo
/mnt/floppy and I do have a /mnt/floppy directory.
Also while I am asking for help, I know how to format a floppy and put a
file system on it; but how do i put a boot.img on it and still be able
to read the disk contents? I use fdformat /dev/fd0H1440 to format and
/mkfs -t ext2 /dev/fd0.
