see step 4 of

1. Making bootdisks with lilo

For some reason or another I can't make boot disks with lilo anymore.
When I had kernel 1.1.12 and lilo 1.14(?), making boot disks was an easy
task.  However, when I went up to kernel 1.1.27, Linux won't mount the
root file system if it is a floppy... I tried booting of my hard disk
linux boot:  linux root=/dev/fd0
it would load the kernel and panic when it can not read the floppy
drive.  The drive can be mounted when my root fs is my hard disk without
any problems.  The kernel reports that there are "Floppy read error
0x51(? -- I don't remember the exact error message/number)" before if
finally panics and dies when trying to mount root floppies.  Anyone know
what's going on?
Thanks in advance
