i am lilo49,
Can we have LINUX os in a single floppy?
Somebody told me that with MINIX we can.
With DOS we can
so can we have a linux floppy which can be used to boot and work with a very minimal set of features.
I think it can be done. The approach I use is to make a boot floppy
and using this make a bootable cd. On a cd there is loads of space.
The cd is used to repair linux systems. Boot the cd and then mount your hd. It can also be used to boot linux & windoze partitions on the hd.
Just food for thaught.
There are lots of single floppy distos out there, with such a limited amount of space their feature set is very limited, and generally specilised (I've encountered rescue disks, firewall disks and mp3 player disks).
