Description of problem:
The new installation software does not make a bootable floppy disk.  
Therefore, it is impossible to boot into linux.  A message appears on 
the screen that I cannot use the boot loader, and to boot from floppy.

The rescue software also did not allow a bootable floppy to be 
created using mkbootfloppy.  Possible there is another way to make a 
bootable floppy.

Also, it is impossible to change the configuration for the boot 
loader if no packages have been updated.
