I recall that the way I made a bootdisk was in the 1st CD. It was a Windows application file. Just pop in a 3.5" floppy disk and it'll do the rest for you.

See here: http://doc.mandrivalinux.com/Mandriv...-bootdisk.html (I think this is to boot the installation off a disk)

or: http://doc.mandrivalinux.com/Mandriv...-bootdisk.html (I think this is for after you've installed it)

Update: Just checked on my system and mkbootdisk isn't installed by default. Install the mkbootdisk package through urpmi (goto easyurpmi if it can't find it) and then follow the instructions above.

As I said in my previous post, install the mkbootdisk package using urpmi or the Mandrake Control Centre. Also make sure you are trying to run mkbootdisk as root. If it still doesn't work try:
Code:
/sbin/mkbootdisk

Try this if URPMI isn't making sense or you're not familiar with it.

1) Mandriva COntrol Center
2) Software
3) Install RPM
4) search: mkbootdisk
5) insert CD/download from source

done
