Description jstoker 1999-02-15 21:20:30 UTC
The floppy which is created from the rescue.img file from
images/rescue.img on the RedHat 5.2 distribution CD doesn't
contain an entry for /dev/fd0.

The simple workaround is a "mknod /dev/fd0 b 2 0" command,
but those forced to use the rescue diskette may be too
frazzled or inexperienced to know that!
