Re: boot floppy
hi ya dale
since you have a working box.... use that kernel ???
debian# dd if=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16 of=/dev/fd0
if that works...and you want lilo-based boot floppy...
debian# vi /etc/lilo.conf
- fix the kernel image to the one you want
-- kinda cute that you did a "5-disk net install"...
any particularly interesting howto site ???
- i finally got around to play with toms root-boot disk...
and can boot "working linux" with one floppy... even more stuff missing
in it but...gets me on the net so that i can mount other stuff to it...
