Install Bootloader to Floppy?


Hi,

My MBR is a disobediant piece of junk. I won't get into it, but basically, I can't install a bootloader to it, or the superblock.

So I'm wondering if its possible to install a bootloader onto a floppy disk? Something like lilo.

If so, how would I go about doing this?

-Thanks

Dunno about slack, but SuSE and Manfrake offer a bootloader setup utility in their configuration panels. Installation to a floppy runs from there.
