Bug#99926: Rescue boot disk error
I did try a new floppy, several times. What I found out eventually was
that rawrite2.exe was writing bad blocks onto my floppies, and all the
data wasnt written. It also destroyed the floppy sector, making the disk
unusable for the images. I switched to the older version of rawrite, and
it worked great. Sorry about the hasty message, but I wrote it over my
2.2r2 rescue disk, and assumed it was in good shape. Assume got me again.
Thanks for your help.
