How to make a bootable floppy?


Hallo. I just installed mandrake 10.1 downloaded from the internet. I have now dual boot with a windows system, so I installed lilo boot loader. Everything is fine, but I can't understand how to create a bootable floppy disk in order to boot into my mandrake in case I loose the lilo configuration. You know, it happens some time if an updating of windows overwrites the boot sector...


Thank you very much

Not sure how to make a bootable floppy, but I think the install CD has some sort of recovery functionality built in to it if I remember correctly.

In case you loose LILO the installation CD can work as rescue CD. Just type rescue after you boot from the CD and you can reinstall LILO from there.
