Linux floppy boot disk- make a copy????

  machow 15:54 08 Apr 04


This is probably a stupid question. I have now installed suse linux on my pc, and i boot to it using a floppy disk. I realise these arent that reliable due to corruption etc, so i want to make a copy on a cd. or even another floppy. Only thing is when i go to view the contents of the floppy, its empty. I have only viewed it whilst in Windows XP. Is this why it appears this way???

Any suggestions???

Thanks in advance

Go into the YAST control centre in suse and look for the bootloader options,choose to install the bootloader on fd0,it will tell you to put a floppy in the drive and then it will make one for you.

Thanks for your reply. Will it allow me to make a cd copy?
