Can not create a bootable "Rescue Floppy" disks in Linux
This document (3524215) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
ERROR This is not a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server boot disk. Please insert boot disk 2.
The 2nd and 3rd disks created contain ONLY the readme.txt file and the rest of the files are missing.
No errors creating the floppy disks. Verification completes as expected.
The menu item for "Boot or Rescue Floppy" will be removed from the YaST2 Control Center.
Work around: If you are trying to install a new server, boot from floppy or see if you can boot to a pixy server.

The first disk is the only complete disk created.
When the other disks (only tested 2 and 3) are created, there are no errors, but only the readme.txt exists on the disk.
It was reported that this was also tested with openSUSE 10 with the same results.
