The Booting From Floppy Alternative

You don't need to use any special boot programs if you are not comfortable with the process of using a boot loader and modifying the computer's master boot record. Instead, all you need is to boot GNU/Linux from a boot floopy that will be created when you install GNU/Linux. You simply insert the floppy whenever you boot your computer into GNU/Linux and make sure it is not inserted if you want to boot into the original operating system. Booting from floppy is a little slower than booting from hard disk but otherwise functionally equivalent.
