If you used make-kpkg (see the thread `New course for Debian
University), and used dpkg to install the new kernel-image package, dpkg
will ask you if you'd like to make a new floppy.  Alternatively, you
could go into your kernel-source directory at type:

 # make bzdisk

With a blank floppy in fd0.  This will put your new kernel onto a floppy
for you, and make it bootable.  If you're referring to making a
rescue/root set, this is quite a bit more complicated, and should be
referred to debian-boot.
