Re: FC2T2 boot floppies



I think you *may* be able to use a boot floppy that doesn't have the
kernel, but instead has a boot loader pointing to the kernel on the CD -
I know I have emergency grub boot floppies that work this way (why the
Anaconda installer can't make one like this I don't know) so I suppose
it could work for a CD too.
