Booting from a floppy


Hi,

I'm trying to get lfs to boot from a floppy but am stuck. All I want to do is to do like I do with SuSE. I usually pop the disk in and boot SuSE but this has complicated the LFS installation and it won't boot.

Any ideas?
Chris

Sorted it. All I had to do was to open YaST2 and save the configuration. The initial boot seemed slower than my SuSE installation but perhaps that was because it was setting itself up.
