I wish if my debian boot disk could take me to that
point. You see, after i turn on my laptop with the
debain boot floppy in the USB floppy drive there is a
read-activity on the floppy for a few seconds. And
then nothing happens. The laptop's screen goes blank
with a blinking cursor. [Note that Mandrake boot
floppy works very well.]

i just used RAWWRITE to copy bf24.bin image to a blank
floppy. The result is same: nothing happens.
Now, my questions:
1. I suspect that the floppy boot images supplied with
Debian 3.0r2 do not support either USB floppy drive,
or PCMCIA CD drive. Is that correct?
2. How do I create a debain boot floppy that lets me
boot from USB floppy drive, and then uses the PCMCIA
Suggestions, tips, help are welcome.
