Node:Creating a GRUB boot floppy, Next:Installing GRUB natively, Up:Installation
To create a GRUB boot floppy, you need to take the files
stage2 from the image directory, and write them to the first
and the second block of the floppy disk, respectively.
Caution: This procedure will destroy any data currently stored on the floppy.
On a UNIX-like operating system, that is done with the following
# cd /usr/share/grub/i386-pc # dd if=stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1 1+0 records in 1+0 records out # dd if=stage2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1 153+1 records in 153+1 records out #
The device file name may be different. Consult the manual for your OS.
