hi, i'm currently trying to install FreeBSD 2.1.0 on a computer of mine...
i'm having some trouble... here's the details...

i spent a while downloading all the files in the bin directory and the two
boot files i would need... i'm going to be installing this from 3.5 diskettes
because i'm not installing it on the computer i DLed the files to...
according to what i gather to do this i should use rawrite.exe to make a file
image of root.flp on a disk and i should boot to that disk... i've tried to
do this an essentially nothing happens... where the compter would normally
say "starting MS-DOS" it just doesn't do anything...  

in case its a trouble with the computer here's the stats on that... its a 286
with DOS 6.0 currently loaded on it... it has a small (20 megs) HD, and only
1 meg of RAM... i'm planning on not having a DOS sector and only installing
the minimum needed files of FreeBSD... 

if you could help me figure out why this isn't working i'd really be
gratful.. thanx...
