i always put in my wallet a small cd ( the one which looks like a card) with a linux kernel in it .. sometimes i use it
i had an idea ...
it would be very nice if we had a single cd that acts like linux boot disk .. like when we use the boot cd to boot from it and use linux-rescue ... the exact thing in a single cd .. and with it .. windows boot disk
so .. when we boot from this cd .. we get a menu ..
1. linux boot disk
2. windows boot disk
we choose whatever we want and the it continues booting
this would be very great for trouble shooting ...
whenever and wherever you are you have this cd in your wallet and if you needed to use linux boot disk .. or windows boot disk . it would be in your hand ..
the question is .. what exactly do we need to make this thing real?
windows boot files are known .
we have windows 9x files .. and windows 2000/xp .. i think they are different right? so the menu would be
1.linux boot disk
2.windows 9x boot disk
3.windows 2000/xp boot disk
how do we make this menu appear when booting ?
what files do we need to reach the linux rescue thingy? lets say i was in my friends house and he forgot his root password ..
i would boot from this cd and choose linux .. and then it linux-rescues .. then i get the console and chroot ...
got the idea?
any suggestions are appreciated
