Use Fedora Installation CD1 as boot CD


Folks:

Due to some painful previous experience, I do not want to install GRUB
on my hard disk. I plan to use a CD to boot Fedora everytime. I was told that I can use Fedora Installation CD1 as a boot CD. All I need is just to pass right parameters to at command line.

Can anyone let me know command to do it ?

Thanks.

Why not just install GRUB onto a floppy?

During installation you are given the chance make a boot disk and
or install a boot loader. What I did was opt for the boot disk and not
install grub, so now my system boots directly from the floppy.
Fedora Core 2 dosent have the option to make a boot disk, yet left
the choice to not install a loader.

That is the dilemma. Since I chose not to install a boot loader, and installation process did not let me to make a boot disk, what to do ?

Plus, I do not not have a floppy driver on my laptop, only CDROM.

Boot

Folks:

I want to boot Fedora from a CD-ROM, just like that we used boot Linux from a floppy.
How can I do it ? (In other word, I just want to put content of boot floppy to a CD and make it bootable). Since my computer does not have a floppy driver, how to do this ?

Thanks.
