 Interesting. I usually come up with commercial pages as well as social 
commentary. Maybe it's the aura I project. I can mess with Google for hours 
only to have someone else sit down and find what I was looking for in 
seconds. :-)

 I tried dd. No joy. It said it couldn't find anything on the floppy. I may 
have entered it wrong. It should be "dd if=root.bin of=/dev/fd0" correct? 
BTW, Linux says something is there but it doesn't know what.
