i would appreciate if you could give me some commands to make boot  disks from linux env etc . i always fail to copy images to floppy disks after compilationof kernel . rawwrite works only for
       dos right ..
       in linux i tried
       mcopy  zimage a:\
       cp zimage /dev/fd0     never works

       the only command that worked was
       make zdisk


       what are the other commands to copy a bootableimage to the disk  ?
