Very odd... The prompt for the second disk is set in the kernel ramdisk word (bit
but why it prompts in one case and not the other is weird -- if it is the same

You could look in the source and see if the flag is set?


I would also set the output in your dd command to indicate the size of the image

something to do with it -- or maybe I am just up too late and rambling?
