This document describes how to design and build boot/root
diskettes for Linux. These disks can be used as rescue disks or
to test new system components. You should be reasonably
familiar with system administration tasks before attempting to
build a bootdisk. If you just want a rescue disk to have for
emergencies, see Appendix A.1.
