hu ho...


I understand...you want to boot linux only from the floppy and not the HD... sot his /etc/lilo.conf would be enough :-)
getting to bed...I won't reply anymore today... I hope it will fit for you

1) log as root
2) insert blank diskette

3) type in /etc/lilo.conf
#-------------------------------------------
boot = /dev/fd0
# notice the fd0

read-only
message = /boot/message

image = /boot/vmlinuz
#put your kernal image .. it might be also /vmlinuz
label = linux
root = /dev/hdcx
# replace x with root dir
initrd = /boot/initrd
4) run ' lilo ' to apply changes
(it will write on the floppy normally)
5) type 'sync'
6) type 'reboot' and see
