Re: creating custom boot disk

Look for a file "CONFIG" in /usr/src/linux after you've installed the
kernel-source 2.0.25 package. That's the config that I used to build the
kernel. The biggest change from previous ones is that you must configure
in the initial ram disk driver.

You can probably just replace the "linux" file on the rescue floppy with
your own kernel and run rdev.sh (it's on the floppy). The floppy is an
msdos filesytem.

Install the boot-floppies package, and you will have all
scripts used to create floppies in /usr/src/boot-floppies* .
