Has anyone had trouble creating boot disks with Red Hat Linux 9.0? I don't have a floppy drive, only a zip drive and I used it to make boot disks for previous versions however 9.0 doesn't seem to want to create one with it. Has anyone else seen this?

joey,
i read that they made different boot disks now...
for example...if you have an ide system..you make a ide bootdisk
if scsi system make a scsi boot disk...etc...ftp...http...etc

you need to make an initial book disk or boot disk after you install for recovery reasons?

I never install the boot loader I just use boot disks. The installer said it made the boot disk but it doesnt work. I've tried the mkbootdisk command once i was able to gain access through the rescue cd but it still wont boot. Maybe its my zip disks but i doubt it..

ive noticed some quite different things with 9...should have stuck with 8
cause if they have the nerve to create different boot disks depending
on what type of system you got...i think its dumb....
