I have done some searching and despite references to this problem I have not
found a solution to this yet.
I have a bootdisk system that mounts root via nfs but I just went to make a
new bootdisk and change some options on it for testing and I found the
dd if=/root/nfs-p3bdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1k
lilo -C bdlilo.con -r /mn/floppy
Fatal:/dev/fd0 Permission Denied
Now I know this works on the (old) systems ie RH6.2 with 2.2 kernels
and on Debian stable with 2.4 kernels.
However, I am trying to run this on the RH7.1 machines and I get the above
The file permissions etc are correct and I cannot see any reason for this
not to work.
Has anyone got any ideas about how to fix this?
