No. it's a 1.44 The same floppy boots fine in another machine (PIII). Even
rawrite'd another floppy - same result.

What I ended up doing was booting from the cdrom which went fine. Don't ask
me why I didn't do this before. Perhaps I got so used to working with old
machines with non-bootable motherboard/cdrom combinations that I overlooked
this install option.
BTW, this is all very curious. I even tried booting a FB-3.5 install floppy
and got the same error message.
Not sure if a Windows virus on the floppy can have an affect but when I have
time, I am going to test that out by creating the install floppy from BSD. I
would think rawrite imaging the floppy would wipe out any boot sector
Thanks for your help.
