OK-I believe I have it all fixed now-
I changed the menu-see screenshot
And fixed DSL, NTpassword and cleaned everything up-
I just cut a CD-R and everything ran beautifully
So I would say the one I'm uploading now is a BETA version
The upload will take awile and so I will post the new download link
in the morning.
Any suggestions on making a another live multidistro CD/USB combos?
Constructive criticism is appreciated.
I should have cleaned it before I uploaded it-but it worked out.
From now on when I come up with something I'll add the warning just in case-
Like Alpha/Beta version
To play the iso in Qemu, etc first so the end user knows that it will boot and run.
Hopefully someone can find a use for it...
I am downloading the USB version now. the download speed is better than the last time I checked for your old file. Hopefully, if my internet does not go down today, download should be complete by today afternoon. After that I will check with it and post again with the results.
So-did anyone try my rescue/recovery USB/CD above?
Well, the next creation is being uploaded now and will be ready for download in about 2hrs.
I used menu.c32 this time too. See screenshot
This time I made a MultiDistro LiveCD/USB featuring-
Slitaz-latest "cooking" version
NetbootCD-2.2 Which can Net-install
Fedora-7-10 + testing
All that on a 512MB USB!
The iso is 459MB and the USB is 453MB.
Remember to install Syslinux to your USB to boot it.
I will post the download url's here as soon as they are done uploading.
As the ISO is a BETA, please run it in Qemu/VMware/etc before burning to CD-R so that you know it works.
All versions above are fully functional. I even included Qemu via Billix and wrote .sh scripts for DSL/DSL-N and Feather so they will play through Qemu when you insert your USB/CD, mount the CD/USB and then invoke the script with "./dsl-linux.sh" , "./dsln-linux.sh" , and "./feather-linux.sh"
I also included the ".bat" files for windows users.
Please try the scripts out and see if they work. Please read the readme files first.
I did notice one big error-I mistakenly have stated that you could just transfer "ldlinux.sys" (syslinux) to your USB and it would boot.
That is not so, I guess you do have to install syslinux through the command line-
"syslinux -s /dev/sdxx" where "xx" is your USB (sdf1,sdb1,sdg1,etc)
After that your USB will boot.
It needs work...I'm working on it now-The menu, re-writing the README1st file, etc.
I know the distro's all boot and run.
I tried just "coping" the "ldlinux.sys"(which syslinux installs to your USB) over to USB but it doesn't work....
So, yes you will need to install syslinux...
