boot disk problems

I made a boot disk for Red hat 7.2 using the Red hat utility. I used the disk once to boot and it worked just fine. But when I tried to use it the second time I recieved an error, something to the effect of:

,,,boot image not found

Thanks for the help.

Ok. In order to boot a system, any system, from any medium, a kernel must be present. This is the 'image'. Either the floppy is looking for a kernel image in the wrong place, or there isn't one present.
