fedora 2 boot disk?

i know that creating a boot disk is not an option anymore in FC2.

I have a pc with xp and fc1 installed, i don't want to use grub as an installer because i have had lots of trouble with it, so the xp boot loader is what i use.

so what can i do when i install fc2 to be able to boot it after installing it? I also have a laptop wih no linux installed right now, i also want to install fedora core2 on that. I have a designated partition for it, and have the same question there, how do i boot fc2?

I believe a boot disk is still creatable in FC2. Check the CD's for the img directory and there should be a boot img (size of 1,44 MB)
