Floppy Installation.

Post by Stephane Raimbaul » Mon, 21 Oct 1996 04:00:00



Hi all.  I am looking into doing a FreeBSD 2.1.5-RELEASE Floppy
installation.  In the docs at www.FreeBSD.ORG it refers to make a second
non-msdos disk with the file root.flp   I have not been able to obtain
this file from their FTP server (ftp.FreeBSD.ORG).  Does anybody know
where I may retrive this from the NET?  thanks alot.

1. Redhat 6.0 ramdisk floppy installation failure

Just trying to boot Redhat 6.0 on a 2*500MHz DS20 and it bombs out on
loading the root fs from the ramdisk.

I've downloaded the generic-up-223.img and the updated (28 May 1999)
ramdisk.img

When I boot it asks for the ramdisk floppy and then says;

RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12,FAT 16,check=n,conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022]
[me=0x37,cs=25755,#f=114,fs=3392,fl=2642564,ds=307153928,de=28015,data=307155746,se=32,ts=1224736768,ls=51808,rc=0,fc=4294967295]
Transaction block size = 512
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00

Am I doing something wrong or is this method of installation broken ?

Cheers,
Addy.
