    Slackware Bootfloppy


    I have the slackware bootfloppy(8.0) but i need a kernel image, I don't wannt install slackware, just need to boot up from floppy, it asks for a kernel image can i place this onto a CD from my original system, if so which file would i need and where would i put it on the CD? is there 1 which will fit on a floppy disk as this would be a little more helpful.

    You should be able to use
    Code:
    makebootdisk
    to make a boot floppy. Use your existing kernel (/boot/vmlinuz) if it will fit. Usually kernels from an installed Slackware system are small enough to fit on a floppy. *Usually*
