hi dear welcome to linux world
 You want to creat boot disk
 Insert your Linux cd 1 in cdrom go to images directory there is file bootdisk.img
 do the following
 dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0
 where /dev/fd0 is your floppy drive
 To learn more about linux go to http://www.redhat.com/docs/
 
 Ok dear enjoy linux
 Good bye
