Hi,
I installed gentoo1.1a in april, and haven't gotten it to work yet. I guess reinstalling is the easiest, but I don't want to :) I no longer have the ISO to boot from it, but I'd like to boot from a bootfloppy, does anyone know where I can get one?
Thanks.

I think someone should release a Gentoo-Boot disc (boot, network).

Yeah, it's the Gentoo installer/rescue CD. It's 16 MB, for kernel, lots of networking stuff, and associated utilities (wget, ssh, scp, ping, etc.). If you can come up with a way of getting 16 MB (25 MB decompressed, actually) of data onto a floppy disk, let us know. :)

What if your system doesn't have a CDROM drive? Like a Laptop. I guess we need just a disk to boot from and the disk d/l the rest from the net.

The thing is, any working networked Linux bootfloppy will work. (Well, almost any.) If your box has enough RAM, you can do pretty much anything once you get a networked Linux kernel on it.
