So, I wrote the gnu webmaster because I could't find the parted root images.

as far as I know all required files are there:

 partroot-1.6.6.gz      1181 KB         28.02.2004      00:00:00

This is the file you need. Just unzip it and dd it to a fresh floppy.

But to be sure, please ask on the GNU Parted mailing list:
address@hidden (http://mail.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-parted).


So, I tried this already, and the unzipped file is 3.9M. So, it can't possibly have been intended to fit on a floppy disk. The boot disk image in ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/parted/bootdisk/ does not appear to support CD-ROM drives, so it seems illogical that the file was intended to fit on a CD-ROM. Is there any possibility that this is the wrong file?
Where can I find the right root image?
