How can I create a boot floppy disk for Fedora Linux Core 5?

January 8, 2011 – 7:42 am

I have a PC. The hard drive has two partitions. On one partition is Windows XP. On the other partition, I installed Fedora Linux Core 5. The boot loader automatically boots to Windows XP as I want it to. I did NOT install GRUB or any boot loader for Fedora Linux as I want to only boot to Fedora Linux when I insert the Fedora Linux boot floppy disk. Otherwise I prefer to boot directly to Windows without being prompted which OS I want to start.

Using the 5 Fedora Linux Core 5 CDs, how can I create a boot floppy that will boot to Linux? …… If the five CDs don’t have a raw image, is there a website I can go to download a Fedora Linux Core 5 boot image that I can write to a 3.5inch 1.44 MB floppy disk?
