Bootin LFS from a floppy?
I got LFS (4.1) up and running! Hooray for me!
Dual boots RH9 and LFS with GRUB on the MBR.
Now I want to create another LFS on another machine.
This machine fails to run GRUB properly...has to do with
the disk geometry or something. It will boot RH9 from the
RH boot diskette though. So before I start that process
I need to be sure I'm able to boot LFS from a floppy.
(Not in rescue mode...boot up mode).
My question is: how does the boot disk work?
The disk contains the following files:
boot.msg initrd.img ldlinuz.sys syslinux.cfg vmlinux
I edited the syslinux.cfg and changed the line
append initrd=initrd.img ro root=/dev/hda2
append initrd=initrd.img ro root=/dev/hda5
(where my LFS partition is)
This produced a kernel panic. So I guess I need to do
something more to get this to go. I haven't found
anything anywhere that actually says what the boot disk
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
