how to make an emergency disk?

I use sco openserver 5.0 system ,I want to make an emergency disk.
# mkdev fd
(1)I choose 2. Emergency boot ...
(2)I choose 2. ...(1.44mb)
(3)I choose 1.root file system floppy
Then it formats my floppy,copy files to my floppy,but at the end, it displays
NOTICE :HTFS:Out of inodes on EAFS dev marry(76/1)
But it can make a root floppy.

And then I make a boot filesystem floppy,the boot filesystem floppy is successfully created.
    When I use my boot floppy to boot my sco,the boot floppy is normal,but when I insert root filesystem floppy,at first it is normal too,but in the end there are a lot of error:
   Notice :HTFS£ºOut of inodes on EAFS dev ram (31/7)
   INIT:failed write of utmp entry:""
   INITSH /bin/sulogin:not found
   INIT:New run level:2

 Can you tell me why and how to solve the problem?Thank you.

It sounds like you added files to your root system emergency disk, but you did not mention that in your description.  Be sure you let the system format the diskettes.  The last errors you are getting are definately an indication of a full root file system during system startup, in this case the root file system in RAM.  

I cannot duplicate this error ... sorry.
Tell me exactly which SCO ver. Is it 5.0.5?
Look at sco site for TA #: 104822
"Out of inodes" error when creating boot/root floppy on SCO
 OpenServer 5.
