That's funny... I used rawrite to make boot/root disks under Windows 95
and it worked just fine. Hmm... Try starting the Win95 machine in MS-DOS
mode (press F8 when booting) and then try rawrite. Another (more likely)
cause is that you're feeding rawrite a corrupted disk image. Try
downloading the root/boot disks again...
