Boot disk problem

I made the bootdisk for linux red hat 9.0 using rawwritten to install my linux. I put the floppy in my computer, restarted the computer, and it showed the linux screen. I pressed enter to install linux in a graphical mode, and it says its loading vmlinuz and then it says error loading boot disk please insert another disk and press any key. WHY IS IT DOING THIS??????? much thanks.

Because you need to insert a non-corrupted bootdisk.

Perhaps there were two disks? One is for the Linux kernel, the other is for various important programs.
