Re: continued problems with 2.88 meg image
I've often wondered if what you're trying to do is possible. Can you
boot a 2.88 meg CD image on a machine with a BIOS that doesn't even
support 2.88 meg drives? Inquiring minds want to know.
Can you create a 1.44 meg image using the same steps you used to create
the 2.88 meg image, and try agin? That should tell you what the problem
is -- your method, or SysLinux/BIOS. See if you can boot the resulting
1.44 meg image from the floppy drive, and then again from CD.
Did you place a valid boot sector on your 2.88 image? I don't think
any of the Linux tools will write a valid MBR. You can copy one from a
DOS formatted 1.44 meg disk. (Use dd to write the first 512 bytes.)
> Loading Boot record from CDROM..Not found
These messages seem to suggest the absence of a valid floppy boot record.
