make-autoinst-disk - create bootable autoinstaller floppy disk
make-autoinst-disk creates a bootable floppy disk for the operating system autoinstaller. It formats a floppy disk, copies a kernel image to it, and then invokes update-autoinst-disk(1). Before this command can be run, the make-autoinst-initrd(1) command must be run to create the necessary kernel and initrd information.
- Temporary directory under which a directory is created to be used for construction of the ext2 filesystem. If omitted, /tmp is used.
- A kernel image corresponding to the kernel_package supplied to the make-autoinst-initrd(1) command is expected to be present.
- An initial ramdisk, typically created by make-autoinst-initrd(1), is expected to be present in the current directory.
- A configuration directory for the autoinstaller is expected to be present in the current directory.
