Description of problem:
Three times I installed the software, and each time, it could/would not create 
a boot disk. How do I create a boot disk without using Linux, which I can't get 
to. Installation is on the second hard drive (hdc) of an i586. The first hard 
drive is the C:\ of WINNT, and is formatted in NTFS, which I do not want to 
disturb. The hdc has LILO in its boot sector, but I can't reach it without a 
boot disk, which the installer cannot make.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.does it every time I tried, three times in a row.

Is there an error message when you are unable to make a bootdisk?
