RE: installation issues
The new iso gets me to a point where it asks for the root floppy. When I put it in (I've tried 4 different root floppies) it says I didn't specify the type of ufs filesystem, then shows me a mount string, then bad magic number, kernel panic and hit L1-a for boot prom.
Any ideas why I can't get past this? I thought on a CD install I didn't need floppies. Am I wrong???
Thanks for the newbie advice,

I had a similar problem which could be bypasswd by using this iso image.
