Description of problem:
There aren't any floppy images for x86_64, only a boot.iso file.  The manual claims that there should be.  http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-3-Manual/x8664-multi-install-guide/s1-steps-install-cdrom.html#S2-STEPS-MAKE-DISKS  I have the latest versions of the cds, but do not see these files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount CD
2. Look in /images
3. Notice the lack of a file called "bootdisk.img"

The x86_64 kernel is too large to fit within the limited capacity of a
floppy disk, hence there can't be a bootdisk.img
