Boot disk problems - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi I have a freind who is running redhat 7.3 and she never istalled LILO or GRUB, for some reason she always got into Linux via a boot disk.

    Default Boot disk problems

    Hi

    I have a freind who is running redhat 7.3 and she never istalled LILO
    or GRUB, for some reason she always got into Linux via a boot disk.
    Both this disk and her back-up have failed and I was wondering if it
    was possible for me to make a boot disk for her from my system - we
    have different machines but the same version of redhat. I tried it
    buit it didn't work - is there anything I can do to make it work?
    Maybe only load a minimal set of drivers or something?

    All help would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Mike

    to get the best help you should have mentioned *why* it did not work

    i suspect it could be as simple as the two machines not booting
    from the same partition

    you can still use the boot disk however
    by passsing the correct parameter

    if all else fails you can always boot up with the original
    cd and create another boot floppy
