What needs to go on a boot disk?
Posted on 2003-11-12
I am trying to make a boot disk for my linux installation. Because I have a scsi floppy drive, none of the provided tools will work.
So I put a formatted floppy (it came formatted ext2/dos) into the drive and tried copying /boot/vmlinux or /boot/initrd.img, but it always failed to boot off it. I tried with both dd and cp even though I dont really understand the difference (any help here?)
Can anyone help me make the boot disk or at least give me some sort of explanation?
Thanks very much
