Description ralvy 1999-06-20 16:32:45 UTC
The mkbootdisk that ships with RedHat 6.0 creates a boot
disk that, when used, will cause the reboot to abort with an
Error 0x02. Replacing the rpm package with that shipped with
RedHat 5.2 fixes the problem.

not true. my mkbootdisk works just fine. since i cant boot with lilo
(see prev. bug), i have to use a mkbootdisk generated disk and my 6.0
works perfectly. i've rebooted with the disk in the drive, rebooted on
 booting up with the disk etc.

I'm not sure if the second comment is from the original reporter
or someone else, as there is no name listed with the comment.

I expect that an upgrade to the mkbootdisk shipped with RHL 6.0
will still work; the Error 0x02 sounds to me like a bad floppy
(even temporarily bad; sometimes re-writing a floppy makes it
work again).

timeout, assuming that any problem has been resolved; reopen the
bug with more info if not true, thanks.
