embedded linux

greetings

Im doing a embeddeed linux project. im using blue cat linux 5 as my embedded OS and redhat 9 as my development host.....

My target board is a second hand PC ( celeron desktop)......


Ive copied all this files into a floppy and set my target board to boot it.........

a. Ive copied the BlueCat Linux boot sector to floppy disk using mkboot -b:
BlueCat:$ cd $BLUECAT_PREFIX/demo/osloader
BlueCat:$ mkboot -b /dev/fd0

b. Copy the compressed kernel to the medium using mkboot -k:
BlueCat:$ mkboot -k osloader.disk /dev/fd0

c. Copy the compressed root file system image to the medium using
mkboot -f:
BlueCat:$ mkboot -f osloader.rfs /dev/fd0

d. Set the device node on the target board to mount as the root file system
or uncompress the file system image using mkboot -r:
BlueCat:$ mkboot -r /dev/fd0 /dev/fd0
