uname -a will show your kernel name.let it be 2.4.20
[root@localhost UserOne]# /sbin/mkbootdisk 2.4.20
Note that I used the full pathname for the command. Without the full pathname, I received a Command Not Found message.) After pressing [Enter], the following message is displayed:
Insert a disk in /dev/fd0. Any information on the disk will be lost.
Press<ENTER> to continue or ^C to abort.that is it.(or you can give /dev/fd0 along with mkbootdisk,but i forgot the option,just checkout thye man for that.)
--arun
