need info on creating a boot disk

I am about to put my linux hard drive in a seperate computer and I can't seem to get the boot disk created. I have tried using the dd command and the mkbootdisk command to create my boot disk. I have not been able to get a working boot disk.

I am trying to create the image from an out-of-the-box IBM Formatted floppy disk. Does the disk need to be formatted in linux format before I can create the disk? If so, what is the command?

I would create the bootdisk from the linux cd but that just gets me into the setup and I am running a different kernel then the setup uses.

I am using Fedora Core 1

I found this on Fedora Forums

I was looking for the same thing. I found this on Fedora Forums and decided to post the link here as it looks very promising. I'm going to try it myself and I'll let you know how it goes.

It should be one line so you might have to copy and paste into the address bar.
