Talking Slack 9 rootdisks

I'm trying to make a slackware 9 rootdisk, but the color.gz image is 2.2 mb and it wont fit on a floppy.

I am using rawriten.exe to make the image and it stops and says "Oops, the image is too big for the medium." and exits.

Does someone know how i can make this rootdisk? Thanks.

You want to make two rootdisks: install.1 and install.2. It's all documented in the README.TXT file found in the rootdisks directory.
