Dear Readers,

I use Red hat Linux as my host OS (RedHat 7.3 Kernel: 2.4.18-3) on a x86
platform. (P3-900 Mhz, 64 MB ram)

I try loading Linux with a boot floppy having the same kernel image
version mentioned above. Please refer the following lines which are a
part of my config file.

plugin = ./plugins/bochs/
bochs-opt boot: a
bochs-opt floppya: 1_44="/dev/fd0", status=inserted
#bochs-opt diskc: file="/dev/fd0", cyl=20, heads=16, spt=23


Installation of Guest linux OS from the bootable floppy crashes,
following is the snapshot from the terminal window


[HD]  <INFO> device set to 0 which does not exist.

Please throw some light on this.
