Re: CD Boot 2.6.1
:This morning I downloaded dfly-i386-2.6.1_REL.iso.bz2, decompressed it
:and burned it onto a CD.
:When I try to boot my system from it I get the following error.

:stopped at dsioctl+0x39: movl 0x8(%ebx), %esi
:and there it hangs.
:There didn't seem to be any errors up to that point.
:Thanks, Jim Chapman
Hmm. Very odd. The disk doesn't have a slices struct. Are any
drives other than the CD detected by the system boot? If so try
disconnecting them and see if the CD boots. I suspect there's an
unformatted drive connected that is tickling the bug.
