How do I create boot diskettes?

In AIX 4.x you cannot, the kernel and ram drive don't fit on a diskette.
You should get "0301-174 bosboot: Invalid device /dev/fd0 specified!"
if you try.

For AIX 3.2.x you will need to have four formatted diskettes.

boot disk: bosboot -d /dev/fd0 -a
display disk: mkdispdskt
display extension disk: mkextdskt
Install/Maintenance disk: mkinstdskt

AIX 3.2.5 may require a fifth boot diskette if you have a FDDI adapter
in the machine. It is the "communications extension" diskette.
