  1. Plan 9 floppy install from local hdd on IBM ThinkPad X30

    Hey folks,

    I'm trying to install Plan 9 via external (not usb) floppy drive onto my IBM
    ThinkPad X30 [1]. My plan is to boot with the floppy and then install from a
    local primary FAT32 partition. This idea is given in the wiki: "If you wish
    to install from local media, you need a FAT file system or [...]" [2].

    If I boot from the floppy the following is seen:

    PBS1...Plan 9 from Bell Labs
    ELCR: 0800
    apm ax=f000 cx=f000 dx=40 di=ffff ebx=5976 esi=-1
    initialprobe, to find plan9.ini...using fd0!dos!plan9.ini
    ..

    Then the Startup Menu with default 1
    I typed 1 but the one showed up very slowly?
    anyway he is doing then:

    pcirouting 8086/248A at pin 1 irq 11
    #Y0: Ricoh 476 PCI/Cardbus bridge, 50000000 intl 11
    #Y1: Ricoh 476 PCI/Cardbus bridge, 50100000 intl 11
    dev A0 port 1F0 config 045A capabilities 2F00 mwdma 0007 udma 203F LLBA
    sectors 78242976
    Unkown boot device: sdD0!cdboot!9pccd.gz
    Bootdevices: fd0
    boot from:

    I tried this:

    boot from: fd0!9pccd.gz
    booting fd0!9pccd.gz
    error walking to 9pccd.gz
    boot from:

    hm what shall I do?
    I am thankfull for any hints ...

    regards y0shi

    I wrote this with slrn into comp.os.plan9 and then I read that it is just
    possible to post via mailinglist ...

    .... now it arrives, but my problems are solved already - so please ignore
    this post.
