SubjectRe: 2.4.11-pre6

Almost a me too:

On a Compaq Armada 1750 with 2.4.3-20mdk (as installed from Mandrake 8.0):

dd if=/boot/grub/stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1
reports back: dd: /dev/fd0: Invalid argument

On the same laptop with 2.4.11-pre5 the same command barfs with:
dd: /dev/fd0: Permission denied

On a P180 w/ 2.4.10-pre13: dd: /dev/fd0: Permission denied

In the first kernel the floppy driver is compiled as a module.
Without the seek=1 (or whatever number there) it works in all cases.

I thought it was something that had to do with my drives but seeing
your report makes me wonder. Perhaps sombody more knowledgeable can
comment...

-K.
