RE: Booting up from floppy problem

OK thanks Sandro I'll give that a try.

Since I don't have a cd -rw in the server itself, can I use mkbootdisk to
create a disk image, then download that image

disk to server then boot off that disk on the server?

I'm trying to boot from disk on a Linux server, but would have to burn the
CD on a W2K machine at home.  Unless I buy and install a CD-rw for the

did you try it with "mkbootdisk"?

I never tried "mondo recovery OS software" but on my boxes, bootdisks
created with "mkbootdisk", work fine.

I never tried it on RedHat, but on some linux-distributions you can
install, update or just boot the system with the distribution disks.

The best way to find out is: reboot the system, put the disk in the
CD-rom and have a look at help texts. If you are lucky you just have to
choose the right F-Key to boot it in the way you want it.
