I did a DOS format and it found no bad sectors. chkdsk didn't show any
problems either. I tried 'make bzdisk' again and the same problem
occured. Then I took an old boot disk, verified that it would still
boot, and did 'make bzdisk' with it. This time it booted.

Gee, maybe CompuServe has found a way to keep us from recycling all those
disks they include with computer magazines and in bulk mailings. Anyway,
that disk has gone into the circular file.
