linux-unbootable-cdrom



Dear Colleagues,

I am responding to:
"Fedora Core 2 test3 Available!
Notable changes in this release include:
- The 'CD1 won't boot' issue appears to be resolved. Any reports of
  continued failure are certainly appreciated."

This is very good news for those using linux-bootable CDROM.
Attached tables show that most of Intel main boards are not
linux compatible and many Intel BIOS drivers  consider the linux boot
CDROM
just as
a CDROM.
My Intel Desktop Board D845BG featuring Intel Express Installer
belongs to
this category
and so many of my students PC.

Before kernel 2.6 that was no problem because
boot-floppies  were doing the job.

A  solution now seems  to develop a sort of two-floppy
boot system.
That  will  help  people without linux-bootable CDROM's
or similar devices.
It would be usefull for others, too,
because  floppy-boot is very simple and
convenient.

Best regards
Jonas Mockus
