NO! its a read failure on the floppy disk drive! relax!

what i am less sure how to know whats the attempt (probly a system status process) to read it, ...
if you do,  (might need sudo?)

dmesg > /tmp/foo

then do

vi /tmp/foo

then in vi, do a

ctl-g

to hop to end of file, ...

do you see any device errors with regard to the floppy? /dev/fd0 , etc?

hth, jackc...

this just keeps going,
I didnt notice this at first today, the system seems to boot normally

I haven't been using this f11 much at all since installing it about 1 month ago;
It was installed using hdinstall from my main os f10.
I mostly use my main f10.

any suggestions?
I dont know for sure,
but I think this was not occurring on my previous days, weeks
occasional boots of this f11.

Reinstall only option?

I havent done anything with fd0, so I am mystified.
