    RedHat 9 - Update BootDisk


    Hi,

    I have a very stable RedHat Version 9 running. I boot from a floopy. I have auto-updates on, and works just fine.

    However, since updating - I need to recreate an update boot-disk.
    Yes, I am a newbe - when it comes to Linux, and mkbootdisk doesn't appear to work for me.

    Can someone give me valid instructions (detailed) - on creating a new bootdisk, so that i can boot with the updated kernel.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Found my own answer!

    I logged in as root - ran a terminal - then entered:
    mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0 2.4.20-9
    and it worked!

    Regards

    Mike
