[ECOS] New to eCos, struggling with RedBoot

Hello,

I´ve just started learning eCos and am using the book "Embedded Software
Development with eCos" by Anthony J. Massa. I´m trying to set up a
RedBoot floppy on an i386 PC target.  

I´m working on a laptop that does not have a floppy drive, and am trying
to use a floppy drive that resides on a network share.  The laptop has a
dual boot system with XP and Linux.  I´ve been able to mount the drive
using Cygwin under XP, and also under Linux.  However, when I run the
command to install to the floppy, it doesn´t work. Below are the steps I
have taken, copied from the Cygwin window.

I may be missing something obvious, but I don´t know. If anyone has
advice, I´d definitely appreciate it!

TIA,

Mike Trozzo

 

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
$ mount -f -b //./h: /dev/fd0  <<<--- h: is the local mapping of the
floppy

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
$ dd conv=sync if=redboot1_install/bin/redboot.bin of=/dev/fd0
dd: opening `/dev/fd0': No such file or directory

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
$ mount
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (textmode)
\\.\h: on /dev/fd0 type system (binmode)   <<<<--- no such file or
dir???

d: on /cygdrive/d type user (textmode,noumount)
g: on /cygdrive/g type user (textmode,noumount)
h: on /cygdrive/h type user (textmode,noumount)

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
$ umount /dev/fd0

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
$ mount -f -b //office/a /dev/fd0  <<<<--- the path to the share; same

called test to attempt to install tthere

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d

Mike@LAPTOP /cygdrive/d
