Description of problem:
When I install Fedora on a blank partition, anaconda asks me to
install the GRUB boot loader. I don't want a boot loader, so I choose
not to install it. In Red Hat Linux 9 anaconda asked me to create a
boot floppy disk to start linux without the boot loader. But in Fedora
anaconda doesn't asks me that; so I cannot start linux after installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. at boot, start anaconda through a bootable dvd rom. the linux
partition must be blank;
2. select not to install GRUB;
3. complete installation and restart the computer.
Actual Results: Without a boot floppy, I cannot start linux.
Expected Results: I expected being able to create a boot floppy disk
Unfortunately, with the size of the 2.6 kernel, a boot disk cannot be
generated in most cases.
