I have r/h 6.2 and am trying to use rawrite to make a boot disk. The screen opens and says enter disk image source file name. Now what do I put in there to get this thing to work? I have tried boot.img and a conglomeration of other things but I keep getting the NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY. The boot.img is in the images file but I can't get this thing to work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(I know I should be able to boot right of the cd)
Thanks in advance

I haven't used RH in years but I think you have to enter the full path for the images.If Im not mistaken it would be eg: d:\images\cdrom.img where d: is your cdrom.

the path is d:\images\boot.img. I thank you for steering me in the right direction.
