Using Local Copy Of Install Disks In Fedora Core 5

1) Create a local folder (let's call it Install).
2) Within that folder create a folder called RPMS.
2) Copy the contents of the RPMS folder on each CD to the RPMS folder. It will moan about overwriting a file called TRANS.TBL but don't worry about that.

Backup and Restore Ubuntu System using Sbackup

Posted 03-21-2007 at 07:06 AM by sridhar11

SBackup is a simple backup solution intended for desktop use. It can backup any subset of files and directories. Exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. A maximum individual file size limit can be defined. Backups may be saved to any local and remote directories that are supported by gnome-vfs. There is a Gnome GUI interface for configuration and restore.
