While I was searching for an old program the other day I happened
upon a few old Linux floppies. All of the below disk images are
circa 1992-1993. I sorta got all teary eyed reminiscing the good
These first two disks are actually just hard disk bootstrap floppies.
They will probably not be of much interest:
The next three are DOS formated floppies containing boot disk images
and instructions on how to create the boot disks. I belive they are
SLS install floppies (can be booted standalone).
- linux_diskmaker_ksh_35.img (make a 720 or 1.44 3.5" ksh boot disk)
- linux_diskmaker_ksh_525.img (make a 1.2 5.25" ksh boot disk)
- linux_diskmaker_sh_35.img (make a 720 or 1.44 3.5" bourne shell boot disk)
I think these next two are also SLS disks.
Looks like the oldest one is Linux kernel version 0.98.pl1-25.img.
I'm surprised these disks were still readable but they booted right
To create the disks just download the below images, stick a floppy in
your drive and:
# dd if=voidsimage.img of=/dev/fd0
