I suspect the same problem !
So I write 3 floppies with resue.bin root.bin and drivers-1.bin from the
debian 2.2r5 "compact flavor" of kernel. The kernel is 2.2.19. The boot
works, the dboostrap start, but when I want to read the drivers from the
third floppy the message is that this floppy doesn't contain a
Perhaps I done something wrong ...
I cannot use the third floppy in any way !
And to eliminate the problem of a bad floppy I tried to mount the image:
mount -o loop ./driver-1.bin /mnt
... but ...
kernel: FAT: bogus logical sector size 8308
kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 07:00
I hope this is not a RTFM problem :)
