make bootdisk command

Anyone know the command or method to make another bootdisk without having to go back through the install disks? Could not find it anywhere in man pages, web, or books; though I may have overlooked. Running Fedora. Thanks up front.

Look at, if you want to make your own bootdisk.
I have not tried Fedora, but I think that there should be a bootdisk image on one of the install-cd's. Try to type:
dd if=/path/to/bootdisk-image of=/dev/fd0
. This should copy the image over to a floppy.

Hope it could help.

there might be a command

It's probably only going to be available for root. If there is, take a look at its man-page.
