Now that's a new one, and thanks a lot for reporting it -- it might well be
bothering other users. And this is very likely your biggest problem.
o Windows-only: watch out for an `Out of environment space' warning. Usually
the command (either make-pseudo-image or rsync) will complete, but the
results will be completely unusable. Solution: start another command.com
with `command c:\ /e:32768' and repeat the command there.
Your current (already wrongly-rsynced) binary-i386-1.iso is probably totally
useless now; start with a fresh pseudo-image if you want to try it again.
