How can you create a boot disk like the orginal installation boot
disk, however with a different ramdisk contents?
To create a boot disk, all you have to do is "dd if=/Image of=/dev/fd0".Quote:> How can you create a boot disk like the orginal installation boot

P.S. dd only works on a formatted floppy. (I think)
The above command should be fine for Linux.Quote:> To create a boot disk, all you have to do is "dd if=/Image of=/dev/fd0".

gzip -cd Image.gz | dd of=/dev/rfd0c obs=18432
The "obs" parameter is the output block size, which nicely buffers up a 1.44MB
floppy track. For a 1.2MB floppy, use obs=15360. The device will vary with
the UN*X being used.
That is correct. However, it only has to be low-level formatted, and anyQuote:>P.S. dd only works on a formatted floppy. (I think)
We developed Alzza Linux 6.0 for Alpha systems at September.
Alzza Linux is 100% compatible Korean Linux version of Redhat.
But we removed unaligned trap in RedHat6.0 and included new booting
images for DS10/XP1000/DS20.
If you have some problems using generic.img in Redhat6.0 and you are not
satisfied with RedHat6.0,
then I recommand our Linux for Alpha system.
Ftp site is ftp://pvmcube4.snu.ac.kr
In this site, we also uploaded iso images for our Linux.
New booting image is 'ds10.img' and 'ramdisk.img'... We tested only 4
arch. - ds10, ds20, xp1000, 164LX, 164UX -
If you are not Korean, then modify the '/etc/profile.d/hangul-init.sh'
and /etc/profile.d/hangul-init.csh' as below.
set LANG variables as 'c' not 'ko'.
We will release 6.1 version of Alzza Linux for Intel/Alpha next monday.
New 6.1 version is somewhat different from Redhat6.1 and S.u.S.E. 6.1
If you have some problem in downloading in that site, send mail to me.
We will migrate new server at next week.
