Re: Burn Debian 1.3 on CD

We use SysLinux to boot from floppy, while others might use LILO.
That could be important. Some of the LILO flags like "compact" turned
out to be important for booting from a floppy.

You should be able to make the boot image work as a floppy before you put
it on a CD. The El Torrito bootable CD format is sensitive about the size,
you must use the same size as a floppy - 2.88MB, 1.44MB, etc.
