I downloaded the boot-floppy-image"boot.flp" (version 6.2) from the FreeBSD-FTP-server and "dd"-ed it to a memory stick. Booting from this stick works fine with every other computer I have (a notebook and a newer workstation also with an ASUS-board). But trying to boot from the stick with the A7V gives me the following output:

What happens if you enter:

0:da(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel

...at the boot: prompt (as opposed to fd(0,a)?
