Hello :-)

SUSE Linux used to offer floppies images on the /boot
directory of the first disk.

these images couls be made from linux or from Windows. There
where a windows start app on the first cd and inserting it
in a windows machine gave the choice of booting linux (the
cd) or making floppies.

this is no more available (10.0).

There is a perl utility (mkbootdisk) that build the (7)
floppies.

so:

* where are the floppies images? Looks like they are cat'ed
(on the "rescue" 21Mb file?) - how are they built with the
script, reading it didn't gave me enough clues,

* if so why does rawrite still exist in the cd? don't seem
anymore usefull. (perl is not that usual on windows :-)

* what is the real + in this system? are the 64 bits
floppies so similar to 32 one is enough to change just some
bits?

thanks
jdd
