i found the boot image file in fedora core2
i.e.bootdisk.img is 6mb. it dosn't fit in to a floppy
using dd command, how to write in cdrom as bootable,
please help very urgent
In FC2, under images directory, you have two files; boot.iso and
diskboot.img (Note that not bootdisk.img).
* boot.iso is to make a minimal bootable installation CD. To create the
CD, do the following.
# cdrecord -v -eject dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 speed=24 driveropts=burnfree
Note: If you use SCSI emulation;it should dev=0,0,0 (or whatever is your
device number; do a cdrecord -scanbus)
* diskboot.img is *NOT* for floppy or CDs anymore. It is for USB storage
devices. A quote from FC2 release note would help.
For systems capable of booting from a USB device, Fedora Core 2 includes
an image file designed for use with USB pen drives (or other bootable
media with a capacity larger than a diskette drive). The file is
diskboot.img, and is present in the images/ directory on CD-ROM 1. Use
the dd command to write the image.
The ability to use this image file with a USB pen drive depends on the
ability of your system's BIOS to boot from a USB device.
PS: If you want to do a network install, why you take pain of creating a
seperate disk? Just say 'linux askmethod' at the installation boot
prompt. It will prompt you the method that should be used for the
install (CDROM, Hard disk, NFS, HTTP, etc).
