boot floppy - internet involved?
On the abandoned BSD-forum I started this thread:
with the subject "floppy boot error - binary vs ASCII mode?" (oh no, not him again )
It was mainly about an error when trying to boot
error 4 lba 248 Invalid format FreeBSD/i386 boot Default: 0:fd(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel boot: No /boot/kernel/kernel
A friend came by and said I probably needed to be connected to internet when doing the actual floppy-booting.
I always interpreted the book that it is not so, but maybe I made a stupid mistake there?
(I got the floppies from the web with another machine, of course)
