Re: QNX RTOS? (Apologies for off-topic!)

     I tried the "QNX floppy challenge" on my box (dual P200) and had no
problems with it, tho I suspect that it was only using one processor.
For a single floppy, it was pretty impressive. I can hardly wait to see
what I can coax out of a single linux floppy once I have more time on my
hands to play with the bootdisk and bootprompt howtos.

     Nor should it. These should be bootable images. Are you using Win95
or WinNT to do the disk writing?
