new mkparted

Some corrections have been made.

This is a little package to create a bootable floppy linux system,
with the 'parted' program on it.

Tell 'mkparted' where the chosen kernel is and the directory that contains
the parted compiled source, the kernel can be 650kb to 1000kb in size, it
depends on the size of the /lib/libc.so.6 on your system.

You'll be told if the kernel is to big.

# ./mkparted -k path_to_kernel -p path_to_parted_compiled_source_directory

Example: ./mkparted -k /boot/vmlinuz -p /root/parted-1.4.10

The kernel must have ram disk and initial ram disk (initrd) support.

You should configure parted like this, so it'll be as small as possible.

./configure CFLAGS="-Os -m386" --disable-shared --disable-nls
--without-readline ; make

If your version of gcc doesn't accept -Os use -O2 instead.

You can configure it anyway and it will still work, but it'll be bigger.
