NAME

mkboot - makes a bootdisk  

SYNOPSYS

mkboot [-r rootpartition] [-i] [kernel]  

DESCRIPTION

mkboot makes a bootdisk. By default the bootdisk will use the kernel /boot/vmlinuz and the current root partition. Use the -r option to specify a different parition, and provide the new kernel file directly to specify a different kernel. If invoked with the -i option, it tries to make a Debian Linux system bootable after a new kernel was installed by /sbin/installkernel. If GRUB is installed, it does nothing. If LILO is in use, it runs /sbin/lilo. Otherwise, mkboot will make a new bootdisk.
