making a boot disk with Debian


Can someone tell me how to make a bootable floppy with my kernel on it. I tried mkboot /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-686 but since I use grub and this command seems to be specific to lilo, I got some kind of error. Thanks.

OK, I checked the man for mkboot. It says if grub is present mkboot does nothing...yeah, I found that out the hard way. There must be a way to make a bootable floppy with the kernel installed using grub. I'd love to know if any of you have the info. Thanks again. Cheers.
