To create your own bootdisk:

. Format a floppy disk (note that you *must* use the minix
  filsystem if you want the install program to copy the kernel
  from your boot disk to your hard drive)

	fdformat /dev/fd0H1440
	mkfs -t minix /dev/fd0 1440
	mount -t minix /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

. Copy this tree onto it

	tar -cSpf- . | (cd /mnt/floppy; tar -xvSpf-)

. Copy your kernel onto it

	cp your_kernel /mnt/floppy/vmlinuz

. Set up the kernel

	rdev -R /mnt/floppy/vmlinuz 1
	rdev -v /mnt/floppy/vmlinuz -1

. Edit startup screen (optional)

	edit /mnt/floppy/etc/lilo.msg
	make sure you stay within 80x24 !

. Run lilo on it

	lilo -v -r /mnt/floppy	

. Unmount it

	umount /mnt/floppy

. You are done!
