Bug Report: Floppy cannot be used

With Frenzy 1.1 BETA3, mounting a floppy causes this error:

frenzy:~# uname -a
FreeBSD frenzy.localdomain 6.2-STABLE FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #1: Tue Dec 4 11:16:19 UTC 2007 technix@amateria:/FRENZY/frenzybuild/build/FRENZY/frenzybuild/src/sys/FRENZY i386
frenzy:~# mount_msdosfs /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
g_vfs_done():fd0[READ(offset=0, length=2048)]error = 6
mount_msdosfs: /dev/fd0: Device not configured

It is often the case that "g_vfs_done():fd0" error is attributed to
a bad floppy disk or a bad floppy disk drive. But in this case,
the same floppy can be used with Frenzy 1.0 on the same machine.

ifrenzy:~# uname -a
FreeBSD frenzy.localdomain 6.1-STABLE FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE #0: Mon Jun 5 11:20:12 UTC 2006 technix@amateria:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/FRENZY i386
frenzy:~# mount_msdosfs /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

The machine is VMWare Player 2.0.3 and the floppy is not a real
floppy but a floppy image file.

The bug report of /dev/fd0 may be ignored. That problem seems to be of VMWare or FreeBSD. A real floppy on a real machine could be used with Frenzy 1.1 BETA 3 without problem.

techniX: Yes of course, it's a public mirror.

I've been reading, but can not find information on what file systems
are supported in v.1.1. For example, are software RAID (0-5) supported?
Is there a list on the Frenzy website? Thank you vert much for all your
time and hard work on Frenzy. :)

Frenzy supports UFS, FAT, NTFS, EXT2/EXT3 and REISERFS:

Hardware and software RAID are supported, but not fully tested.

This is still one of the best sys-admin BSD live media! I placed a link on my blog so that my blog readers can click that link to visit this site.
