How To Create a DOS Startup Disk in linux?
Is it possible to create a DOS startup disk in Linux?
The reason I ask is that I have just installed a seagate cheetah SCSI HDD and migrated my linux mdk 10.0 to it from my old IDE- HDD (which somehow got it's logic board fried in the process, so it became junk before I could migrate my windoze partition). Now, linux mdk is really great! The driver for my controller was already in my kernel. So all I did was load up my distro cd, chrooted into my newly migrated partition, deleted the old ramdisk image and used "mkinitrd" to build a new one from the COOL 2.6.3-7mdk kernel, ran "lilo" and then linux booted up with no probs. Now when I try to install windoze from my windoze cd, it says it can't detect my HDD, so I'm thinking that maybe I need to copy the drivers of my controller from the vendor disk into a DOS startup disk and keep it in while I run the windoze installer from CDROM ( I don't have a floppy drive, but if I can make an iso image of the DOS startup disk, then I can burn it on a small CD and use that in my other cdrom drive instead). Since I do not have windoze installed, I need to do this in linux.
I'd be grateful for some guidance here. I STFW'ed but could not find any howto's for this.
