Build needed monolithic kernel as usual (make bzImage), and then: #!/bin/sh dd bs=1440k count=1 if=/dev/zero of=floppy.image mkdir -p floppy mount floppy.image floppy/ -o loop=/dev/loop0 mkdir -m 700 floppy/boot cp -p boot.b bzImage floppy/boot/ cat > lilo-floppy.conf << __EOF boot=/dev/loop0 map=floppy/boot/map install=floppy/boot/boot.b compact delay=20 disk=/dev/loop0 bios=0 heads=2 cylinders=80 sectors=18 image=floppy/boot/bzImage label=lilux read-only # change /dev/hda to your CD-ROM device root=/dev/hda append="single" __EOF lilo -C lilo-floppy.conf dd bs=1440k count=1 if=floppy.image of=/dev/fd0 Then simply boot from that floppy. -- Alexey V.
