3.1 Creating a GRUB boot floppy
To create a GRUB boot floppy, you need to take the files stage1
and 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/lib/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.
