When I boot my computer from the boot.img floppy it start to read the 
floppy and produce the message: SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26. A second or so 
later it adds Boot failed to the end of this output. The total output on 
the screen then is: SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26 Boot Failed. My computer 
currently have RedHat 6.2 on which I would like to upgrade to RHL7.0. It 
did not have any problems with the RHL6.2 boot image.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create boot floppy from respin boot.img

Actual Results:  SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26 Boot Failed

Try a different floppy, it looks like your floppy media is bad.
