Exclamation Installing Mandrake 9.1 from an HD


I posted a thread in here yesterday asking how i could install Mandrake on my system without having to burn the images on a CD.

After some hints and checking the proper documentation, i figured i could extract the images in a FAT or ext2 partition and use hdd.img to boot and install Mandrake.

I did all that (i extracted the first CD into an empty FAT partition and used rawwritewin to write hdd.img to an old floppy that was lying around) but when i tried to boot with the floppy it says "Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to continue.

i cannot find any useful information about such a problem on the Mandrake website, so i was wondering if anyone could tell me what's wrong and how i can fix it.

Thx,

-Mat
