I have (I think) installed successfully on my laptop.  But during several
installs I cannot mount my DOS partition to access the SRC and BIN files.

Now that I have finally made it all the way through a minimum install, when
I boot it can't find the kernel and I am left with a simple prompt

boot:

Any command I enter it tells me NO

if I "?" then it lists my directories but I cannot get to them.  Any help
would be great.
How do I set up the floppies for install?
And is the boot: prompt a system level or did the last install bomb out?

Thanks
Michael
