I downloaded the latest 2.4 floppy images, but it looks like you didn't get around to disabling the objcopy yet.

In any case, I still get a red X.

The objcopy and the bfd library on my most recent debian sarge install are dated May 19th, 2004.  Is it possible that we haven't had a successful powerpc OldWorld floppy boot since that time?
