 I've been trying to get my Kernel small enough to boot from a floppy (zImage and bzImage).  Removed all unecessary drivers, etc.. however I still can't get it on a floppy.  I know its possible anyone have any global ideas about what exactly I am ignorant about.  By the way I've read all the Howto's and tried it on both 2.0.xx and 2.1.xx kernels and still get the same problem.
