making boot disk


how to make boot disk after installtion ....
i know we have to use mkbootdisk command wat r the option we must give for it......
wat r the content there will be in bootdisk ...

advanced Thank you!

To make a boot disk after installation u have gui utility in almost every newer version of Linux distro, better to use that .. but if u want to make urself.. then.

Grub uses two stage for booting.. so u have to copy to stage files found /usr/share/grub as stage1 and stage2 so follow the following command..

for grub...

--- Code: --- cd /usr/share/grub/i386-pc
 dd if=stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1 # this will write on first sector

 dd if=stage2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1  # This will skip the first sector so write on second sector.

--- End code ---
