for making a boot floppy for installation perhaps this:
Maintainer: Bernd Eckenfels <email@example.com>
Suggests: lilo, loadlin, syslinux, zip
Description: Make a kernel + rootimage bootable from one disk or from DOS
mkrboot generates bootdisks that contain both a kernel and a rootimage.
This enables debian bootup for installation purposes from one floppy.
mkrboot can also use loadlin to make a floppyless installation possible.
Boot methods supported:
- Loadlin from running DOS/Windows without a floppy
- Loadlin from a FreeDOS bootup disk
- Lilo from one floppy
- Kernel Boot loader from one floppy
- Syslinux from one floppy
haven't used it myself ..
