Description of problem:
Graphical setup phase does not offer to create a GRUB boot disk.
On a multi-boot system, where NTLDR is the main boot loader, a GRUB
boot disk is needed in order to boot the Linux system (at least until
you get the linux boot sector copied over).
Yes, there are instructions etc for creating the boot disk; it only
took me 10 hours to figure it out. And I knew what the problem was.
The recovery CD worked fine, btw; used that to create the GRUB boot disk.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. No option given to Create Grub Boot Disk, during setup.
With the size of the 2.6 kernel, creation of a boot disk isn't
possible due to capacity limits of floppy disks.
You are as bad as Microsoft. I have been harassing them over design
flaws and all they say is "by design wont fix".
Anyway, you missed the point; I didn't ask for a LINUX boot disk, I
asked for a GRUB boot disk. Which does fit on a floppy. For which RH
has instructions on how to MANUALLY create.
(for those that need a GRUB boot disk, this works, use recovery cd to
# fdformat /dev/fd0
# mke2fs /dev/fd0
# mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
# grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/floppy '(fd0)'
# cp /boot/grub/grub.conf /mnt/floppy/boot/grub/grub.conf
# umount /mnt/floppy
