That's for making a floppy that'll bypass you bootloader. That one refers directly to "cooker". You don't want that. You already have to have madrake cooker installed.

Cooker is mandrake's name for the fork that contains their work-in-progress for the next version. Don't use it unless you know what you're doing, as it will definitely break at one point or another.

Edit: you can make fd0: as you boot device by running the lilo config...

Do you have linux installed?

Why do you want to boot from floppy?
