    changing IBM Thinkpad T40 BIOS bootscreen


    I'm following the instructions at thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_change_the_BIOS_bootsplash_screen in order to change my BIOS boot screen.I am using the diskette method. I have created the virtual floppy and edited dosemu.conf. However, I get an error saying theres no medium to write to in the floppy drive when running 1ruj27ud.exe. So I did what it says, "echo 0 >/sys/power../randomize_va_space", but i got an error about permission denied. Then i added sudo but it still wouldn't work. So then I used vi to manually change the file but I got an error about "fsync failed". I can't use the diskette program to write /tmp/floppy.bin.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you tried the dd command? Also, you need to format the floppy first. See the fdformat command to do that.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
