How do I make an Ygdrasil boot floppy?

How do I make an Yggdrasil install floppy? I am unable to use the
supplied floppy, as I had to make a new kernel (1.1.68) in order to
have AHA-2940 support. It boots fine and recognizes my SCSI drive and
cdrom, but I need to somehow tell it to mount root from cd. How would
one do so? My first crack at installing lilo on the floppy didn't
go so well... I guess I installed LI, and not LILO.


           Good, bad - I'm the guy with the gun.

1. Making custom boot floppies without a floppy.

Assume I have a laptop computer without a floppy
drive ( I don't, but assume it anyway :).

I want to create a custom boot cdrom.  This
seems to require that I have a floppy drive
to create the (lilo)  boot section for the cd.

Is there software, or a procedure, available
that will allow this without the actual floppy

Thanks in Advance,
