How to make boot + root disk? - Please Help!


How can I make a bootable diskette that has a minimal root filesystem on
it (maybe just mount, cp, ps, e2fsck, /etc and probably no networking)??

I know how to make a bootable disk by copying the kernel and using rdev,
however I don't know how I'd place a root filesystem on the diskette.

This would be extremely useful for disaster recovery, like the goof I did
yesterday by accidentally wiping out ld.so

Please advise!
