memtest86 iso on floppy


Hi all!
I need to use memtest86 on my systems booting it from floppy
I did:
Code:
dd if=memtest-3.0.iso of=/dev/fd0
..but doesnt works at boot!
I need to boot it on OpenBSD machine too!!
Is it the right way to create an iso bootable floppy??

Yet a 2nd question:

I know that I can boot an iso from lilo
someone knows how??


TnxVM

for floppy:
Code:
dd <memtest.bin >/dev/fd0 bs=8192
for lilo:
Code:
image = /boot/memtest.bin
    label = memtest86
