Can someone point me at an up-to-date and accurate HOWTO for
creating a bootable CD-ROM , using a bzImage which will boot
if dd'd to floppy (with of course root partition set via rdev).
This is the same bzImage which LILO boots my machine, incidentally.
(And yes, I've Google-whacked this topic with every possible combination
of CDROM/LINUX/BOOT/CDROM/ and, surprisingly, get any advice which actually
worked. Or is it me , hmmm ... :)
I've tried creating a CD-bootable image using mkisofs, and then
writing it to CD via cdrecord, but the bootup fails (the booting
messge of continuous dots soon turns into lines
of Pc register contents , e.g. "AX=1212 etc)
Ill skip the boring details of mkisofs / cdrecord dialogues for now,
pending some kind soul's explanation.
