    Re-Create BootDisk


    hello,

    I was able to successfully install RH9.2, however I did not create a Floppy boot-disk during the installation as my floppy drive was out of order at that time(last week).

    Now that my installation is running, can I create a boot-disk at least to safeguard my PC incase it crashes, or do I have to re-install all over again?., - i mean just like windows.

    thanks
    Toks

    I assume your using GRUB

    fdformat /dev/fd0H1440
    mke2fs /dev/fd0
    mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
    grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/floppy '(fd0)'
    cp /boot/grub/grub.conf /mnt/floppy/boot/grub/grub.conf
    umount /mnt/floppy
