Re: "Make boot floppy failed"

Are there certain details I need to give to get a
reply?  I looked for the dbootstrap package at debian.org, but I guess it isn't one, even though the message on a virtual console is "dbootstrap: Make boot floppy failed..."

I tried many floppies with the write-protect off.  I tried redoing the whole process again after verifying my floppy drive still works.  Any suggestions?  I haven't found anything on the web or mailing list archives about this.
