Hi, I've just received my 2.6 OpenBSD CDROM and I'm trying to boot it
from an IDE CDROM configured as my second IDE device. Though my
computer supports booting from CDROM (and it works with Linux) I'm
unable to do so with OpenBSD. Therefore, I made a boot floppy using dd
on Linux which seems fine, it boots and I get the "boot>" prompt, but
this boot loader is unable to find the CDROM.
When I try to boot directly from the CD the system hangs very early on,
basically (it appears) as soon as the BIOS attempts to use the CD as the
I've looked through the FAQ and checked Deja.com but have found nothing
relevant. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
