Boot disk


I'm having a bit of trouble creating a boot disc for redhat es3. I tried a floppy but the .img files are too bit. So i tried a cd and this doesn't work, clearly im doing something wrong.

This is going to be used for kickstart so i need the ks.cfg file too.

Anyway, with a CD i made an iso file with all the files from the isolinux folder plus the ks.cfg file. This doesn't boot at all.

The files I've got are:

boot.cat
initrd.img
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
ks.cfg
splash.lss
TRANS.TBL
vmlinuz
some .msg files.

Clearly im doing something wrong here but i cant see what.

Any ideas if this is the correct procedure to create a boot cd from a windows machine?

Thanks,

Lewis

You can download and use the "Ultimate Boot CD".
