    Creating a recovery boot diskette


    Hello All, I had recently survived a minor creash of the Salck 10.1 box. But I would like to create a recovery boot diskette, hopefully with LILO and MBR on it. If anyone would be able to tell me what command would create a recovery boot diskette, I would really apreciate it.

    Thank you.

    Dmitry.

    Are you sure you need one?

    If I remember correctly, you can use the install CD to boot back right back into your Slack install with:

    Code:
    linux root=/dev/hdxx ro noinitrd
    (substituting your drive info for the xx, such as hda3)

    spit, its gentoo based, I'm forced to use gentoo at work argh, but its only 100MB, and the more tools the better I say.
