Linux no space error while creating a bookdisk

Q. I’m trying to crate a bootdisk using mkbootdisk command. However I’m getting error which read as follows:

no space left on floppy /dev/fd0

How do I fix this problem?

A. The mkbootdisk command is used to creates a stand-alone boot disk floppy for the running system.

This error indicates two thing:
(a) Your kernel size is > 1.44MB

(b) You are attempting to write a boot disk image greater than the size of the floppy disk

I recommend using CD or USB pen to boot your system. You can also use first CD/DVD disk to boot Linux system.
