New Release- Multidistro.com Official Rescue-Install-Kit for CD/USB/HD


OK, my greatest work yet!
screenshots here
( http://multidistro.com/tinycore-shots/tc-scrnshots.html )

( http://multidistro.com/shots/scrnshots.html )
I removed microcore, and clonezilla(pmagic has clonezilla)
and replaced browserpuppy with my remaster rescue puppy

It includes 390mb
it wwill to a folder named
"newcdusb"

tinycore-2.1(very loud OSS stereo on aol radio!)
rescuepuppy49(added xfprot av, dd rescue, testdisk, photorec
and rocks-n-diamonds game too)(remaster script in /my-documents folder)
partedmagic-4.3( added flash module)(no sound)
clamav livecd non-x
netbootcd-3.1.1 install any major distro
plop bootmanager boots usb/cd/hd

goes on cd-r/cd-rw/fat16,fat32,ext2,ext3 usb or hd
all are frugal and all will boot on almost any
medium (cd, usb,hd)

there are 2 scripts in /boot folder to create
a isolinux-bootable iso image to burn to cd

all menu.lst(s), isolinux.cfg/syslinux.cfg already setup
plug-n-play

more info here, including a script to make it into a grub-bootable stage2_eltorito iso image!
( http://multidistro.com/downloads/res...stall-info.txt )

Download here, about 390mb extracted
( http://multidistro.com/downloads/pup...all-Kit.tar.gz )

PLEASE post here if you have any problems or questions-

you can choose any "dragon" desktop from syslinux/isolinux/grub menu at boot
also, use framebuffer for older pc's/lappys
"vga=788" "xsetup", "xvesa" stuff like that

ALSO!
if using isolinux cd or syslinux usb, at boot you will get boot message;PRESS Enter to goto main menu!

Notes/edit You may have to edit menu.lst/isolinux.cfg/syslinux.cfg files for your usb or cd device!!

Example, I set it up to look for sda1 usb and hdc cdrom
your cdrom may be hdd, so edit accordingly
your usb may be sde1, sdb1, etc, edit accordingly
this is mostly for tinycore-2.1

**EDIT
I mistakenly mis-labeled syslinux.cfg for browserpuppy menu
but it goes to rescuepuppy menu
just edit syslinux.cfg to say rescuepuppy instead

Looks good. I used to use the INSERT distro (based on knoppix), but that rescue disc became obsolete when Knoppix failed to provide support for SATA devices.

I'll check it out.
