This is not really a PARIDE issue anymore, but I would like to get to the
bottom of this situation where you can boot from _factory_ diskettes
but not from floppies you make yourself. If you take the factory
floppy and dd it off to a file and back to a new floppy, does that disk
boot ?

At least the way you've described things, this can be nothing other than
a problem with your floppy drive :-(

Try the sequence above, and then read the new floppy back in to a second
image file. Use cksum on the two files - do you get the same results ?
