Sorry, some minutes ago I was wrong to post my "documentation bug" and I send 
it again.

I want to upgrade from 6.2 to 7.2 but I do not want to use a boot manager.

In the manual  for upgrading to 7.2 it is not clear if, and at which point, it 
is possible to create a new floppy to boot the system from. In the screenshots 
I do not see any more the appropriate checkbox, as I did in 7.1 manual, annex A.
The documentation reader (me) tries to guess if:
 a)it is not possible to create this floppy while upgrading to 7.2. (but only 
installing it).
 b)it is not necessary to create a new floppy (and, for istance, it is possible 
to use the one  previously created with the old vesion).

I argue that it wold be better to clarify this point.

Many thanks again
