You can use the following instructions to create the *three* diskettes
needed. You will need to do this on a working system.
1. Log in as root.
2. Run the following commands to create a BOSBOOT diskette
(A formatted diskette must be in the drive to run these
# bosboot -c -m -p /usr/bin/dskt.proto -d /dev/fd0 \
-f /usr/bin/dskt.fs -b /usr/bin/dskt.image
# dd if=/usr/bin/dskt.image of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024
3. Run the following commands to create a CONSOLE diskette
(A formatted diskette must be in the drive):
# /usr/lpp/bosinst/display/mkdispdskt /usr/bin/bosdis.image
# dd if=/usr/bin/bosdis.image of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024
4. Run the following commands to create a INSTALLATION/
# /usr/lpp/bosinst/diskette/mkinstdskt /usr/bin/bosinst.image
# dd if=/usr/bin/bosinst.image of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024
