floppy root.img sizes
Sorry if this is the wrong list for this...
I have been testing daily sarge floppy install images from
for a few weeks on OldWorld Macs.
That is, until October 8. Since then, root.img seems to have swollen to
a size bigger than I can dd onto a floppy.
What's puzzling to me is that the sizes reported by any tool I use to
download the images is less than the ls -l report by around 4.2KB.
Example: in gFTP today's root.img shows 1468006 on the server and
1509557 on my hd.
about my troubles, but got no takers.
Any advice, no matter how mean, will be appreciated.
