Subject1.99.8: documentation for making boot floppy
The README in /usr/src/linux for 1.99.8 suggests this command to make
a bootable floppy with a Linux kernel:

cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /dev/fd0

that hasn't worked for me since sometime around 1.3.60. The command
from the arch/i386/boot Makefile does work, I recommend putting it in
the README instead (or figure out why the plain cp doesn't work)

dd bs=8192 if=/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage of=/dev/fd0
