It's 8r2b, from a standard base (startup) floppy, with just boot and usr loaded.
Then I go into the "menu" and type "C". The cloning process seems to work, I pick
the partitions, it installed and didn't give any error message.

Then I do a shutdown -r 0, and the system comes back with a disk mouted as read only
and I can not login.

What can I try ?
