Question RedHat 7.1 boot disk creation fails - need help

I've got one physical disk with a couple partitions. c: with win98, d: with win2k, hda5 linux native, hda7 linux swap. I believe those are right, I'm not looking at it right now. Anyway, RedHat 7.1 installer boots up and installs fine, but at the end when it tries to create a boot disk, it always fails, even though I know the floppy is formatted, blank, and has no errors on it. I need to use a boot floppy because the partition is above 1024 and I don't really want to mess around with LILO (plus I'm relatively new to linux). Any help would be appreciated.
