I had a similar problem myself. The fix is easy. Rawrite3 will not
work properly under an OS/2 DOS session.

To fix the problem, shorten the filenames to 8.3 format for use under
DOS and copy them to your DOS partition. Then boot DOS and Rawrite3
the images to to the floppy disk. That should give you a good bootdisk
and the three basedisks.

Good luck!
