hi all

Can anyone tell me a reliable way to make a boot disk? I've tried the
mkboot util, and I have to say it's pretty average - it hasn't
successfully booted a disk, only get's to:

"LILO boot:
Loading linux"

and dies ... I'm pretty sure there's a way to make a boot disk with dd,
but can't remember how. The machine I'm trying to boot uses a 2.2.14
kernel and mounts the second SCSI drive as the root partition ...
