Linux comes encapsulated in a variety of distributions. For the most important
distributions, bootdisks are available to install the system on a computer.
Here is my collection of bootdisks that I found or that I made (everything
under construction, for now!).
The (gzip-edition) is the raw bootdiskimage compressed by gzip.
You can decompress it using gzip -d file or using the
gunzip tool. Under MS-DOS/WINXXXX you can use rawrite to
copy it on a 1.44 MByte 3.5 inch diskette. Under UNIX systems, please use
dd if=bootimage of=/dev/fd0, if the 3.5 inch drive
represents drive A:.
