Originally posted by rotvogel If you can't boot from the CD you'll need a bootdisk (bare.i for example) and 2 rootdisks (install.1 and install.2). You can create these disks with a RAWRITE program.
Please read the documentation included in the /rootdisks and /bootdisks dir (README.TXT) what version of RAWRITE you need and how to use it.
I've made several attempts at making a boot disk and the two root disks by using Rawrite but have been unsuccesful. I have tried to locate the files on my CD, can someone please give me a URL for the image files? I don't want them compressed, thanks
drone - there are several versions of RAWRITE. I tried regular RAWRITE, it didn't work; RAWRITEXP, didn't work, RAWRITE13 (I think), perfect. My point is just that if you are having trouble creating the floppies, you might solve it by trying a different version of RAWRITE. -- J.W.
