    Another Boot problem.


    I'am new to linux. I just came to linux 2 months ago. For reasons too long to list, I cannot make another boot floppy. Do any of you fellow linux users know where I can get one for Mandrake 9.2?
    (usually people get mad at how clueless I am when it comes to linux. I can't help it.)

    I have already tried google, And had no luck.

    Boot Problem

    No, my mandrake disk is a DVD. And all of the computers I have access to only have cd-r.
    So I was wanting a reliable website.

    As an aside, if none of your computers have a floppy drive, then why do you need a floppy recovery disk?

    You should be able to make a floppy from the DVD. Or you can make a bootable "floppy" recovery CD-R by making the floppy image to your HD, then making a bootable, floppy emulated CD-R out of that image. I had to do that with Partition Majick.
