Unhappy bash: mkbootdisk: command not found


i've just installed RH 8.0 and am booting from floppy. i wanted to make a backup floppy to boot from if need be. i open a terminal window and issue the following commands:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
[rfmac@localhost dev]$ uname -r
2.4.18-14

[rfmac@localhost dev]$ mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0 2.4.18

bash: mkbootdisk: command not found

[rfmac@localhost dev]$
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
