Booting Fedora Core 2


Hi there!

I've got a problem with booting Fedora 2. I've got on my master drive WinXP and on my slave drive Fedora. My problem is that I've installed Fedora without booting manager because i thought I could make a boot floppy with the Fedora setup. I've searched for one but I haven't found one. Pleaze help me!!!

THX

Well I'm not sure. :/
This is what i wrote:
# mkbootdisk "kernelno."

then i get the message that the floppy drive can not be written. It doesn't says anything else like numbers or something like that it just says it can only be read.

regards.
