Re: potato boot floppies

Hi Mirek, list

I noticed that it worked after having formatted them. Thanks though.

Oh, well, that's news for me. Why is this though? AFAIK, dd writes
directly onto the disks without and not via an fs?

Anyway, I now have new problems. :-)
Aren't they nice, they give you something to spend your time with, don't
they. :-)

When booting, I get lots of errors about dependencies and when issuing
"modprobe ppp" or something, I get:

modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.0.35/modules.dep
(No such file or directory)

This is really weird as I am running potato here and not any of the
2.0.x series kernels!? In fact, 2.2.15 is what shipped with the boot
disks I sucked off a deb mirror.

Thanks for help!
