I am having some trouble writing the resq1440 disk to upgrade to Debian
1.2.3 from my existing Slackware system. I did read the installation
manual, and got the message about disks - but now I have gone through a
box or more of brand new Sony disks (not all from the same box) and am
having a hard time believing that they are all bad.
I got the CD from iConnect and tried to follow the directions - cd
This does not exist, so I changed to current and then ran dd
if=resq1440.bin of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 conv=sync; sync to create each disk. I
have now created more than 2 dozen disks which will not boot.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there any way I can get a decent set of
disks made so that I can get with the Debian program? I would hate to
stay with slackware...but at least I can install it.
Thanks in Advance,
