In the vein of getting a way to install FreeBSD 7.1-BETA2 onto my SATA
IDE drive (otherwise still running 5.2.1. from IDE drives) I found in
the seek of other methods to bootstrap myself, that the boot floppy
hangs after asking for kern1 floppy. Could that be just bad media or
could it have another cause. In other words: Has anyone tried to boot
from a 7.1-BETA2 floppy set recently?
Other suggestion of how to bootstrap me from 5.2.1 to 7.1 are welcome:
Doing a cvs-sup ? (Is there still this method of updating FreeBSD? -
I've been a while off from the front)
Making my SATA drive (/dev/ar0) bootable and putting the contents of the
distribution into it?
