Suse boot.img file


Hi,

I am looking for this file to use it with rawwritten.exe to boot on a floppy boot disk to install the Suse Pro 9.3.
Can you please let me know where I could find this file please?

Thanks in advance.

It's actually 6 files and you'll find them e.g. here: ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/linux/suse/ftp.sus...boot/bootdisks
Some other files are one step up: ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/linux/suse/ftp.sus...i386/9.3/boot/

Where do you see an *.img file to use it with rawwritten?

Thanks in advance.

Aren't they on the first installation disc? They used to be, I'm sure.

On the 9.2 DVD, the files you would need are /boot/bootdsk1 ..2 and ..3. There's a README with instructions for creating boot floppies with rawrite or dd. Probably the same for 9.3 I should think.

Why are you picking so much on the .img ending? Read the README and get happy!!!
