Re: bootdisk.img for fc2

Hi,

where can I get a bootdisk.img file for an 1.44MB floppy disk for
Fedora Core 2. I can't boot from my cdrom, so I have to create a
bootable floppy disk. Fedora Core 1 has had a bootdisk.img file for
1.44MB floppy disks, but not so fedora core 2 does. There is only a
diskboot.img file for VFAT filesystems and medias larger than a
floppy.
Where can I get this bootdisk.img file from?


regards Olaf




Olaf,
Due to the size of the kernel you won't find a boot floppy for FC2
and please search throught the list archive, this has even been asked today...
your alternatives are local install from partition


## quote ##

If you have some disk partition which you don't install to, you can do
hard disk installation. Simply, put the ISO images into some directory
on that partition,

cp -a /mnt/cdrom/isolinux/vmlinuz /boot/FC2-install
cp -a /mnt/cdrom/isolinux/initrd.img /boot/FC2-install.img
umount /mnt/cdrom

and add entry like:

title Fedora Core 2 Installation
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/FC2-install
        initrd /boot/FC2-install.img

to your /etc/grub.conf, then reboot into "Fedora Core 2 Installation".
During the install choose Hard Disk installation and point the installer
at the partition with ISOs.

or a netinstall Also please use plaintext when posting to the list...
