    This is a program that works in extracting data from a squash file system.
    The name of the program to execute is called extsqsh (stands for extract squash )
    If you install the deb package you will have it in your path by default.
    As well if you are on redhat your going to have to alien it to rpm

    If you guys are curious on what the heck some of those squash.fs files have in them.
    Warning not for the faint of heart

    Let me know how you guys like it or if there are any problems with it.

    Also I am curious is there any free .deb file hosting sites out their that are easy to upload to/provide access for the general public to download.
    I have tried launchpad but forget it seems to restrictive.
    Currently I am just hosting these on any file hosting site.
    But am curious if there is a better place that I can place these deb packages into so people can add the site to there source.lst then apt-get install my package.

    I don't want to host on my own computer a .deb repo.
    I know most linux distro's can probably just install it with there gui dpkg installer just by click on a link.
    But I would also like to set up so people will beable to also apt-get it as well since older distro's may not have a gui or some people may not be running a linux distro with X11. Whatever the rare case maybe I would like to cover both ways

    Ok. plugged in my Puppy Legacy OS 4 mini iso pendrive into my Ubuntu 10.04LTS Desktop. Made a /home/harry/dumpdir (I should have permission to dump files there)
