Description Derek Tattersall 1999-11-15 20:13:55 UTC
When boot the floppy made with mkbootdisk it puts up a message on the
console regarding entering "rescue" to call for the rescue image.  However,
Red Hat no longer uses a separate rescue floppy.  In addition the message
says nothing about entering "linux single" at the prompt to boot from
floppy in single user mode.
