hey, this might be a stupid question, but oh well. I installed red hat 6.2. It installed fine until i got to the part where i have to make a boot disk. I put a formatted disk in and it gives me some error that it couldn't create it. I've tryed it 3 times now and i still get the same thing. Is there anywhere on the net that I can download them for red hat 6.2? any help is appreciated, thanks.

I finally got it figured out. I made a boot disk under ms-dos using rawrite. I dont know why it won't create it in the red hat 6.2 installation. Oh well, I got my boot disk, I'm happy
