fedol2a col2e boot floppy?

Hello everyone. I have just started to learn the Linux and I have a quick question that maybe someone can help me with. I am a longtime Winblows user, and this is my first real exposure to the LinuxOS.

I have just installed Fedora Core on a box, and that all went freat. It boots up just fine, video, mouse, etc are all working.

The only problem I had during the install was the boot floppy.

Since I am obsessive compulsive with boot floppies, and I must have them for every install i do, I selected yes to creat a boot floppy during the install.

The error I received was something to the effect that the installed size is too big to fit on a floppy.

My question is: Is there a way around this? Or am I stuck without a boot floppy?

Thanks in advance fellers.

You can download a boot floppy:
Also, some boot floppies can boot their own independent system or boot the system you have installed on the hd.
