    Procedure for putting Linux on floppys?

    What are the files I need to put Linux on a floopy and have it be able to run when I boot up my computer. Minummum requirements and there is no cd-drive only floopy.

    free0n,

    Do you want to run linux from floppy or do you want an emergency repair disk to boot from?

    free0n:

    Take a look here http://www.linux.org/dist/english.html

    You can do a search on the page for floppy and you should find a few distros that are floppy-based.

    I downloaded a small distro of linux called LOAF linux. I think this is what you are looking for. Check it out at http://www.ecks.org/projects/loaf/

    I'm actually looking for somthing that would boot from a clean
    ms-dos harddrive. I mean totally clean the only thing it does is boot up with the C:\ and one file called the command which is the stupid Microsoft logo.

    Sorry for not being specific.
