Can you boot from a floppy OK using
Boot: wd(2,a)/kernel ?
No I haven't tried this, but I don't think it'll work since at boot
time it thinks it's on wd(1,a)!
You are probably stuck on that method for life since most BIOSs
can't boot off the second controller without help.
It boots OK, it just won't mount root.
