    **sniff sniff** there is no love for Babbing...

    man mkbootdisk

    that should tell you all you need to know. i am not in RH right now, so i can't look at it myself. hopefully this will suffice for the moment

    also you can use dd, i keep a little notepad of these things, it has been pretty handy.


    dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=8192k

    run that on the CLI once the floppy is mounted and you will have yerself a brandynew bootdisk. also, check the menus and stuff, i thought there was a GUI for makeing one

    wheeee
    its good to feel loved
    dd will only work if you have a image file.
    you don't need to mount it because you are writing directly to fd0
    mkbootdisk is probally better, it makes a disk from the kernel that the 'puter boots from
    this should work:
    Code:
    mkbootdisk --device=/dev/fd0 /boot/vmlinuz
    assuming your kernel is vmlinuz. it should be if you haven't made your own
