NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       mkboot - makes a bootdisk

SYNOPSYS    [Toc]    [Back]

       mkboot [-r rootpartition] [-i] [kernel]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       mkboot makes a bootdisk.

       By  default the bootdisk will use the kernel /boot/vmlinuz and the current
 root partition.  Use the -r option to specify  a  different  parition,
  and  provide the new kernel file directly to specify a different

       If invoked with the -i option, it tries to make a Debian  Linux	system
       bootable  after	a new kernel was installed by /sbin/installkernel.  If
       GRUB is installed, it does  nothing.   If  LILO	is  in	use,  it  runs
       /sbin/lilo.  Otherwise, mkboot will make a new bootdisk.
