unofficial FC-devel installer boot floppies



I've created a set of unofficial, experimental FC-devel installer boot
floppies. They're available here:
http://math.uci.edu/~bnathan/linux/fc2-floppies-i386/

Right now I've posted floppies for rawhide (fc-devel) as of 2004-05-09.
There are three floppies. No matter what kind of install you are
performing, you need all 3 disks. It's currently very bare-bones; it
does not offer the user the option of adding command line arguments.

Go ahead and try these out if you're interested...


FWIW, here's where I obtained the various components I hacked together:

FreeDOS kernel & command.com: FreeDOS Beta9 pre-release5
cat.exe: dosemu-freedos-1.2.0-3mdk
loadlin: whatever ships in the dosutils directory with SuSE 9.0 FTP
syslinux, memdisk: syslinux-2.08-3 (from fc-devel)
vmlinuz, initrd: isolinux directory from fc-devel
autoexec.bat: I wrote it. I just realized I didn't think about what kind
of license to use for it -- oops. Any suggestions? Right now I'm leaning
toward GPL.
