Help creating and installing lfs **floppy**
I am using a very old for this project. It only boots from hdd or floppy disk.
All I need to know is which one and how to load it to the floppy drive (using xp).
I am new at this so please pardon my noobiness
thanks so much
The Linux kernel doesn't fit on a floppy disk anymore, so installing a reasonably modern LFS system from floppies isn't going to work.
10 1.5 MB floppy disks = 15MB of space total.
These days you can get 10 floppy disks for $2 and if you have an old computer like I do that actually reads from floppy disks this could be useful.
Like instead of using the 44435 KB 2.6.9 linux kernel you could use the 5707 KB 2.0 linux kernel.
It would be useful if you were just making a rescue disk with just a VERY bare minimum of tools.
The idea here is to make a linux distro as small as possible.
Those kernel sizes are the actual not installed package sizes so I have no idea what the ACTUAL size of the linux kernel would end up being once compiled.
The only problem here would be that 10 floppies is kinda a BIG number to just keep taking them out and putting them back in.
sadly though floppy disks never got over 1.5 MB
