RE: boot disk

mount disc1 in your existing linux.
copy boot.iso from images/isolinux/ directory to local disk.
mount boot.iso from local disk.
copy vmlinuz as vmlinuz-fc2 in /boot directory.
then copy initrd.img into /boot.
edit /boot/grub/menu.lst file to add
title hd-install
root(hd, ) whatever is shown above as root directory
kernel /vmlinuz-fc2 target directory(like /dev/hda etc) where you have down loaded the isos
initrd /initrd.img
then save & boot . you will be prompted to hd-install in grub boot . it will boot & you can install.
in fact I did it sucessfully in my pc.

I downloaded the Fedora Core 2 from bittorrent and all 4 disks were
downloaded fine.  However, when I tried to install on my laptop I found
out that my laptop won't boot from the cd-rom.  Then I found out that
there is no bootdisk image file for the Core 2....so what am I to do.

Is there anyway to make a boot disk?

Thanks for the help.
