Smile total newbie help

i've already installed suse 7.3 and i have windows 98 and suse 7.3 partitioned on my computer. however i didnt manage to have much use for the suse so i soon went back to windows but i didnt repartition my comp so suse is still on it.
however, one day i was short of floppies so i decided to transfer my bootdisk and modules which were on my floppies on to a folder on my hardrive and use the floppies for something else. now however i want to use suse again but whenever i try to transfer the bootdisk files back onto a floppy its says there isnt enough memory in the disk. the problem is my disks only allow 1.39 mb of memory whereas the bootdisk is 1.40 mbs! so how can i create a bootdisk since i'm baffled?

Well when your using the boot disks for something else, did you remove the old files on it before transferring them ? You can also reformat the floppies first and then try to transfer.

Disks don't use memory they use space, get SuSE 8.1 I like it.
