But if you do try this, start dfuibe_installer like so instead:

dfuibe_installer -o /cdrom/

The "-o" argument tells it where to get the DragonFly files from.  When
booting off CD, this is normally "/", but in this case, "/" will be the
existing files on the hard drive...

You may also have to adjust your PATH before starting dfuibe_installer
so that it picks up utility programs (like cpdup) from the CD-ROM
instead of the ones on the hard drive.


Its not for me, I can boot live cd from a cd just fine. Its just me,
trying to help few people, and help the project, so you guys wouldn't have
to answer newbie-to-advanced questions, and get on with more important

Thanks to everyone who offered help. In the end I just installed FreeBSD 4.x and upgraded, since there are floppies available for that. Working on a kernel build now.
