Hello MasterC, I'm back again.

Everything is ok again, I solved the internet problem - it had nothing to do with Linux.

But I am back to square one. I won't try the MBR any more, cost me to much nerves. Here my new question, resp. an old one formulated anew:

My old functioning dual boot floppy has four files on it:
lilo.config 343 Bytes
boot.b 4540 Bytes
map 10240 Bytes
vmlinuz 667293 Bytes

1) The files boot.b, map and the versions of vmlinuz I find in the /boot/ directory are all different (larger) than the ones on the floppy. Why? I cannot remember how that floppy was created, but it was certainly under kernel 2.4.4-4GB.

2) When I try to make bzdisk it complains or zdisk it refuses because of the size exceeding 1.4M. But it alway tries to include the file "System.map", which is also in its old kernel version much larger (313253 Bytes) than the files called map. If I would manage to create a floppy with "map" instead of "System map" I would have no size problems with 1.4M.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

By the way, if you ask me to document something: how can I copy and paste something into this reply field. Terminals or editor let me copy to the clipper but I have no option "paste" unless I copy something from within the forum.

Thanks
