"My Boot-floppy doesn't boot anymore. I get the message:

Do the following to your boot floppy after placing it into the drive:
# just in case, save what you've got
dd if=/dev/dsk/f0q15dt of=/tmp/image
mount /dev/dsk/f0q15d /mnt
If the install process crashes or is broken out from, it tends to leave
a bunch of files in tmp. There are only so many blocks available on a
floppy, so it doesn't take long to use them up. You have made a backup
of the floppy, haven't you? In fact, it's a good idea to make a second
backup with some useful tools such as fsdb to use as a maintenance disk.
