But I cant find any hints about dual floppy boot syntax.
loadlin.exe works for single floppy too - but even though loadlin.exe is small (11K on disk) is needs the minimal dos programs (command.com, io.sys and msdos.sys) which adds 131K to the system. I don't know if it has syntax for dual floppy boot - but size alone leaves loadlin.exe out. Syntax to start linux via loadlin.exe after boot:
For dual floppy boot grub legacy works but is (too) large (100K on disk):
Floppy 1 contains initrd, main.sfs and the grub files (stage0 & stage2)
Floppy 2 contains kernel
title Floppy Puppy
pause Insert floppy number 2 (kernel) then press enter
kernel /bzImage root=/dev/fd0
pause Insert floppy number 1 again (initrd and main.sfs) then press enter
Question: Any suggestions for a tiny boot-loader (20-30K) which is able to boot large kernel via dual floppy setup?
