Slackware Bootdisk


Ok then.. I have created two bootdisks, one with color.gz and one with bare.i
Which one should I have in the floppy on reboot to boot ?

Because when the CPU says Verifying DMI Pool Data the floppy loads a little then nothing happends .. It seems to just stop there. Anyone know why it doesn't boot ?

Thx in Advance

It should be the bare.i disk (then you'll be asked to insert the second one). If you have problems, try to write the floppy again or use another floppy.

to create a boot disk, your floppy need to be in PERFECT shape. Don't try it with an use floppy if you are not sure it is in perfect condition. If your floppy has any bad sector, it will probably fail to boot.

You may not be able to boot unless your bootdisk has the same kernel as the one you installed.
