> how do i create a startup bootable floppy after my installation ?
If you have a CD, just do:
# dd if=/cdrom/floppies/X.flp of=/dev/fd0 bs=18k
Where "X" is "kern", "mfsroot", and "fixit", you may as well do all
three. (I think they're the right filenames; basically you don't want
the "boot.flp" unless you have a 2.88MB floppy drive.)
I assume you only want these because your computer can't boot from a
CD-ROM or something? Booting from floppies is a real pain, especially
when you need two of them.
