    Trying to make a bootdisk


    Hello everybody,

    I just wanted to recompile why kernel but before i start with it, i want to make a bootdisk.
    In case off any problems. You never know
    But every time when i try the command mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 my shell is telling me this:

    Insert a disk in /dev/fd0. Any information on the disk will be lost.
    Press <Enter> to continue or ^C to abort:
    /tmp/mkbootdisk.zL3220: Permission denied
    Failed to format /tmp/mkbootdisk.zL3220


    And when I try to do this mkfs.ext3 /dev/fd0 my shell tells me the following

    mke2fs 1.37 (21-Mar-2005)
    /dev/fd0: Permission denied while setting up superblock


    The moment of executing the command i was root and i also changed the permissions with chmod. Is there anybody how has an idea because i'am starting to get desperated.
