newbie - Pre-make boot disk - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I would like to download the pre-make boot disk from the recommended site http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bootdisk-HOWTO/premade.html There are a few sites provide boot disk for download. However, the boot disks provided by these sites contain different sets of files. So, which sites provide the most standard set of files? What (like file names and directories) should be contained in a standard boot disk? Thanx a lot...

    .... those are for systems that cannot boot off the CD-ROM
    drive. so you boot off the floppy image and then from there
    install from a CD or some other method, such as ftp

    can you NOT boot off your CD drive?

    It depends what you want the boot disk for. If you want it just to boot
    your system, you can do it in Windows (as explained by someone else) or in
    Linux. If you want a "rescue disk" the most comprehensive IMO is tomsrtbt
    at http://www.toms.net/ Running from Mandrake's Rescue prompt, I am never
    sure whether I have an editor. Sometimes it is there, sometimes it isn't.
