New Potato Boot Floppy Problem (fwd)

I don't know if this is timely of not, as there is another image available
now. Just thought I should pass this along.

Attempted to load new boot floppies from
All went well until drv14-2.bin attempted to load.
It complained about floppy disk checksum not matching checksum made when
it was written.
Attempted the following actions:
     1. Copy downloaded file to different floppy. - same result
     2. Downloaded drv14-2.bin twice using different floppies - same
result each time.

     All files were coppied to floppy using "dd bs=512 if=<filename>

Looks like there may be a checksum problem with drv14-2.bin.
