System hangs on FDD writes
I am trying to copy files to a FDD for an installation process. The files copy, but the system hangs (does not accept mouse or keyboard input). I am forced to hard-boot the system to recover... and of course I get those FS errors related to bad shutdown/irregular unmount. On reboot, the FDD is fine & works.
This happens everytime I dd to /dev/fd0
[landrew@localhost landrew]$ dd if=ptisxutils-1.30-0.23.i386.rpm of=/dev/fd0
1013+1 records in
1013+1 records out
[landrew@localhost landrew]$ _
1) Am I doing anything wrong (assuming the filenames are correct of course)?
2) What am I doing wrong?
3) Does RHL have have a way to kill active processes? (In W2k ctrl-alt-del --> TaskManager would resolve this)
