Boot problems with i386



Hi again,

Nick Hollan, thanks for your advice. In order to install OpenBSD 2.7 in a
i386 box, I made a boot floppy with the following command in my NT PC:

E:\2.7\Tools\ntrw E:\2.7\i386\floppy26.fs A:
3.5", 1.44 MB, 521 bytes/sector
bufsize is 9216
1474560 bytes written

However, when I tried to boot from floppy, I got the following:

reading boot...
probing:  pc0 com0 com1 apm pci mem[636K 312M a20=on]
disk: fd0 hd0*

Is there something wrong with my boot floppy?
If I boot from floppy, how can I start OpenBSD installation from CD?

Any comment is welcome.

Thanks.

Greetings,
