Rescue Disk

By theword ·
Hi.
I have redhat 7.0. I know you can get to rescue by inserting the CD, and picking the rescue, but how can you copy it to a floppy disk, or can you? I was led to believe that you can or it is a normal practice. So I need some clarifiction on how to access the rescue.
Thanks,,,,,,,Pat

Try the following:

If you want a rescue disk, do
$ make bzdisk

I am sorry that I posted that last answer a little quickly... I was not able to make that work at all, though.

Anyway, I did find a way to make a boot disk. Make sure you know the kernel image you are using (mine is 2.4.2-2 and I am on RH7.1 also).

Here is how I did it:

$ mkbootdisk --device /dev/fd0 2.4.2-2

Use the man page for more options (man mkbootdisk).

Hope this helps.

I tried that make bzdisk command, and my bash shell doesnt recognize it at all. It tried different combinations of that to see, such as mk bzdisk, $make bzdisk, make bzdisk,
$mk bzdisk and so on.
Any other suggestions would be helpful, Thanks
