1. SLS's a2-disk - DOS-formatted or raw-formatted??

I am confused. I don't know if for the SLS installation I need to have
disk-a2 raw-formatted (as disk-a1) or DOS-formatted.
Currently, I have it DOS-formatted having the following:

   BIN4     TGZ    161664 07-25-93   2:47a
   DISKA2             896 07-25-93   2:47a
   DOSEMU   TGZ    157568 07-25-93   2:53a
   FAQ      TAR     92160 07-25-93   2:57a
   IMAGE    TGZ    257280 07-25-93   3:06a
   LILO     TGZ     63360 07-25-93   3:08a
   SC       TGZ     90880 07-25-93   3:12a
   SHLIBS   TGZ    125184 07-25-93   3:16a
   TERM107  TGZ    131968 07-25-93   3:21a
           9 file(s)    1080960 bytes
                         131584 bytes free

.. but it failed to satistfy the 'doinstall' procedure.

In the -  "Answers to FAQ about Linux" -FAQ- Version 1.18 - it says

on 5.2.1 (page 27):
  "The Softlanding Linux System Release ......
   The first disk must be "rawriteen" (using rawrite.exe) on the floppy
   and the rest of the images are put onto DOS format floppies."
and on page 29:
   "The files in the a2,a3 and a4 directories. These must be copied to
   MS-DOS formatted floppies."

B U T  in 5.2.5 (page 31):
  "For the SLS release, ......
   You need the README's there. Basically, you use rawrite to copy
   thae a1 and a2 images onto floppies.
