Plop hangs while loading from floppy?
« on: June 26, 2011, 21:02:09 PM »
When I try to boot Plop from a floppy, it hangs leaving a row of dots about 7/8ths of the way across the screen. I know that Plop was written to the floppy correctly and I made sure the floppy drive was first in my boot menu. I don't know if it makes a difference, but the BIOS is a Phoenix 4.0 release 6.0. This is really bugging me since the cd drive on the computer is defective. Thanks for any help in advance.

.11-2 and .10 didn't work, but I used the boot loader and edited the boot.ini and now I'm in plop. Thanks for your help!
