Hy guys, I want to make a boot disk in my Red Hat Linux. For this I log in first as root. Then I input a disk in my floppy drive and use [[email protected]~]# uname-r commend. But it does not show me anything. What is the problem? How can I solve this?

Hi Paul,

Your command is not right. Actually you can make Grub Boot Loader, Lilo Boot Loader or simple operating system boot disk. I think you are trying to last one. You need to mkbootdisk command for create boot floppy from running system.

This command will work for Red Hat or RHEL or Fedora Linux. This boot disk look like a root file system on the device suggested /etc/fstab. Now please follow as below.

1. Insert a blank floppy Disk in to Floppy Drive.

2. Now type # mkbootdisk $(uname -r) then enter.

3. Now you will see insert a disk in /dev/hd0. All information will be lost. Press to continue or ^c to Abort.

Hope, now you can make the boot disk

Hi

Here’s how to create a linux boot disk.

First you will need a floppy disk, now load up linux and try to make sure you are logged as a root, type this in the command prompt  ls /lib/modules  to check which kernel you are running, and this would give the directory item in the exact kernel such as:2.4.2-2.

Insert you floppy into the floppy drive. At prompt type: kbootdisk –device /dev/fd0 x.x.x-x  replace the x.x.x-x  in the info kernel above replace the x.x.x-x.  You will have an emergency boot disk in a minute. That’s it Use it as emergency situations.
