how to rescue boot from cd
i'm thinking of a new laptop from http://www.qlilinux.com. the new gen2:
(yada, yada, yada)
my only resevation is that it ships with a usb floppy.
in the event that i need to boot from a rescue floppy, i'd be sol 'cause
the usb floppy would only be recognized _after_ the box boots.
1. what good is a usb floppy in linux?
2. is it possible to make a boot cd (with the "mkboot" command)?
3. how would such a box be bootable if lilo failed on the mbr?
