I'm trying to run SLAX Frodo on this really old laptop with a floppy drive and a CD drive, but the BIOS only supports boot from hard disk and floppy. Is there any way i can make a floppy that boots and tells the computer to boot from CD?

Make a boot floppy with boot.img or boot-fd.img from the cd istself, then boot with both floppy and cd in, it should automatically recognize the cd.

If someone tells you to su rm -rf /
