I'd like to install NetBSD on my 486 (DX4-100 PCI with 16MB RAM). I get to the 6th floppy and it dies with 0x1351034
Initially tried with v9.3. I then tried v8 with no success.
Is this supposed to work or are the floppy images / 486 hardware effectively unmaintained?
I might try the disks in my Pentium 166 and see what happens, but I really want to install on my 486 the traditional way (via floppy).
Yes, it was a pain in the butt trying to stage 6 floppy disks. Also, if a disk fails, the whole installer bails and you have to restart from scratch. No just replace disk 5 and continue. Gotta reboot load all again. Worth it though - if it will work 😛
