Description of problem:
It is impossible to create the diskette boot during the installation 
I selected to do not use the fedora boot loader (soory, I forgot the 
name). In this case the message is that I must create a boot diskette 
to start up the system. When prompted to select yes or not, I 
selected yes to create a boot diskette. However the error message is:
Impossible to create boot diskette.
The lenght of modules of kernel for yopur machine baecame impossible 
to create a boot disk that can be stored in One diskette..
I tried the installation process using several types (Personal, 
Workstation. Server) but the message is the same.

Boot disks won't work anymore due to the size of the 2.6 kernel.
