Making a back-up CD of Slackware 9.1 and Fedora
1. PLEASE tell me how to make an EXACT SAME cd of Slackware 9.1 and Fedora Core 1 for back-up purposes.
If you know how it should be copied from linux and from windows it would be perfect.
If not linux will be ok.
I tried making a copy of Fedora with the commands :
mkisofs -o /c/fedora.iso -R -J -V "LXFCD49a" -v -d -D -L -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/isolinux.boot -A "Fedora Core 1" /c/fedora1
cdrecord -eject -v speed=4 dev=3,0,0 /c/fedora.iso
And an iso file is built and written to a cd. The cd boots, I press enter, it loads vmlinuz and
and another img file, and then shows an error:
and some illegal pack type err=1 or something.
I restart the computer, it boots again from the CD and LOADS the files OK. So it continues working until
I get a messaage Kernel system panic !
I don't remember how I backed-up Slackware 9.1 (the exact commands) but it behaves the same way as
2. The instructions for making a copy of the Slackware 9.1 cd located on the cd say:
mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-x ./bootdisks \
-x ./extra \
-x ./slackware/gnome \
-x ./pasture \
-x ./rootdisks \
-x ./source \
-x ./zipslack \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .
Then use 'cdrecord' to burn it. (See 'man cdrecord')
I don't think this would work because the cd is joliet mode also.
Thank You very much for helping !
completely automated install CD (RedHat9)
I read the reply that suggested that a completely automated install CD might be desired. That is what I want. I have done it before, but forgot how.
I think I put my boot: command in a file on my new disk in the %post area of kickstart, and somehow read it at the boot: command. Not sure how I did it or which section of kickstart I put my command.
Does anyone know how to do this?
Any help is much appreciated.
