easy way ...
root# dd if=/boot/vmlinuz of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024
and boot from floppy... if you're lucky.. it will work
if not, think back 10 yrs ago ...
- boot MS windoze into command prompt mode ..
- or boot using a dos floppy
run loadlin <options> for your linux disk/partitions
( ie.. run loadlin from your linux boot batch file ( linux.bat )
u dont need lilo, grub, syslinux, cdrom .. but you do need fd and
at least boot into plain old fashion dos
or use network boot .... but you will need a boot server somewhere
else on your lan
or .... ??? ... ( you win the bonus prize for this one )
