Scsi cdrom / need bootdisk

2013-06-07  Source: Original Site  Category:Linux  Views:0 



I have a laptop running NT and I want to wipe it out and put some kind of small linux on it (i.e. minimalistic slackware). The problem is that the scsi cdrom is not bootable so I need a floppy disk to be able to install from the cd drive. I tried to copy the bootdisk and rootdisk *.img's (from vector linux iso) to floppies , but it doesn't recognize scsi.
