boot disk problems ver. 2.00000

I asked a question earlier I installed a copy of Macmillan Linux-Mandrake 6.5 without much difficulty. I want to use a boot disk to dual boot (win98). During the setup I create the boot disk yet when the sys tries to reboot I get an error when a kernel tries load and it fails. I've tried the setup boot disk process with four different floppies.

Thanks in advance.

boot to a dos disk and do fdisk /mbr because windows has a really bad habit of hosing up your master boot record. make sure you have lilo properly configured once you get into linux.

no no no, it seems nobody here knows anything about dos, or windows for that matter, exit windows to dos, (under start shut down, reboot to dos) type "cd.." (without quotes) now type "format a: /s"(exactly inserting a \ will mess it up) (after you put the floppy disk in of course) now copy config.sys and autoexec.bat a:\ to do that type "copy config.sys a:\" (without quotes) now type (copy autoexec.bat a:\"(without quotes)
