Hi list,
currently i am reading the Redboot user guide. I want to try redboot on my PC. I have Redhat Linux 7.1 installed on my PC (Pentium 4).
i tried the installation procedure as expained in user guide. but i failed to get Redboot prompt when i reboot.
can anybody help me out.

The steps i followed

1. formatted floppy disk using fdformat "/dev/fd0"
2.$ dd conv=sync if=install/bin/redboot.bin of=/dev/fd0H1440

i have downloaded the x86 redboot binaries from

http://sources.redhat.com/ecos/boards/redbootbins/x86pc/


         redboot.bin (80 Kbytes)

         redboot.elf (500 Kbytes)

Regards
Harish
