booting zipslack


I unzipped my zipslack distribution in D:\ and made a boot floppy.
What should i type on the "boot: " prompt?
i've tried /dev/hda1, /dev/hdb1, /dev/hda2, /dev/hdb2...
I always recieve some kernel error...

Did put "mount" before the "/dev/hdxx"? Assuming that your D: is /dev/hda2, you should type "mount /dev/hda2 rw"
Note that logical partitions start at /dev/hda5. Chances are the only primary partition you have is your C:. The rest are probably logical.

So try "/dev/hda5" instead of "/dev/hda2".
