The only time I have booted from a floppy disk is under OpeBSD, when I installed 3.9 and later when I upgraded to 4.0 and 4.1.

Creating it off FreeBSD was some thing like:
fdformat -y /dev/fd0
dd if=floppy_image of=/dev/fd0 bs=32k
cmp /dev/fd0 floppy_image

Thou shalt check the array bounds of all strings (indeed, all arrays), for surely where thou typest ``foo'' someone someday shall type ``supercalifragilisticexpialidocious''.
