Can't create GRUB boot floppy
I decided in an earlier post that I was going to dual boot XP and Debian using a GRUB boot floppy which would put me in Debian only when I put the floppy in. I can not get the GRUB boot floppy put together right can anyone help me? What files should be on the floppy? I am trying to create this using XP so keep that in mind.
Ideally I would love to have the GRUB boot menu be run from the disk and be able to choose whatever I want at boot time. Call me paranoid, but I want to make sure I don't hose XP at this stage.
Re: Can't create GRUB boot floppy
To do it right (like in the previous post) you need to get into Linux. A good way to do that is with Nerderello's excellent Grub Tutorial. To go straight to creating a boot diskette (though without a menu) go to that link and "find" "Getting a Grub boot diskette" for instructions on how to do that from within Windows.
