Description Lloyd D Budd 2002-12-27 21:33:19 UTC
Description of problem:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-8.0-Manual/install-guide/s1-
bootdisk.html
reads "If you boot your system with the boot disk (instead of GRUB or LILO) , 
make sure you create a new boot disk whenever you make any changes to your 
kernel (including the installation of a new kernel).", but it does not tell you 
how, or tell you where to find how to create a boot disk outside of the 
installer. 

ASIDE: I am not sure of the component, could not find rhl-ig, or other 
documentation component.

Comment 2 Sandra Moore 2003-01-02 14:54:36 UTC
In that same section of text, above the text you have quoted, it says:

Note that if you would like to create a boot disk after the installation, you
will be able to do so. For more information, please see the mkbootdisk man page,
by typing man mkbootdisk at the shell prompt. 


Best regards,
Sandra
