I have installed Mandriva 2005LE onto a SATA drive alongside a Windows XP SATA RAID 0 setup. Mandriva does not dedect the SATA RAID Drives so I can't use LILO to dual boot, so I have comeup with a solution by searching around.
I want to be able to copy the Mandriva boot image onto a floppy disk, I have booted up into Mandriva with the rescue mode off the DVD image I have and mounted all drives and chroot /mnt, I have then typed:
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
I then get the error that msdos is not supported and or that fd0 is not there, or something along these lines. Does anyone have any ideas for mounting the floppy disk I have?
The next command I want to run is this:
dd if=/dev/sdb2 bs=512 count=1 of=/mnt/floppy/Mandriva.bin
So I can then copy this into windows C:\ and mod my boot.ini file with the location of the Mandriva.bin file so that with ntldr I will be able to start Mandriva.
