Re: potato boot floppies

When writing - or trying to, anyway - the images, I get the following:

hp90:/mnt/hd2/data/Tmp/potato # dd of=/dev/fd0 if=base-1.bin bs=1024
dd: /dev/fd0: No space left on device
5+0 records in
4+0 records out
hp90:/mnt/hd2/data/Tmp/potato # cmp /dev/fd0 base-1.bin
cmp: /dev/fd0: I/O error

What's the problem? This is a normal 1.44 MB image used with an
(unformatted) new floppy of the same size!?
