creating boot disk image...


hi... how do you go about creating a boot disk... got slackware 9.1 kernel-2.4.25 (downloaded the precompiled from the slackware website)... what is the command to create a boot disk in linux ie in DOS with a blank disk if you did c:\format a: /sys it would do the job...

but i want to create a bootable CD... how would i go about it...

thank you...

You probably have 'makebootdisk' command.
