creating a bootdisk without using a floppy

Is there a way to create a bootdisk without a floppy?

I made a bootable CD, so I needed an image from a bootdisk. I created a 
bootdisk using LILO and dd-copied it to the image file. After that, I tried 
to create the same bootdisk using the loopback device. But when LILO readed 
lilo.conf, as it is told to create the bootdisk at /dev/fd0, it tried to read 
from the floppy. So I couldn't create it.

Any idea?
