NAME
bootcdflopcp - copy changes made after booting from bootcd to floppy SYNOPSIS
bootcdflopcp [-v] [-d <device>] DESCRIPTION
bootcdflopcp will copy changes made in ram to the floppy disk. bootcdflopcp will be available as soon as your system is running from cd. The floppy has to have a filesystem already. (See mke2fs or mformat). If you have to boot from floppy, because your cd-drive or bios does not support to boot from cd a msdos filesystem is used to run syslinux. When bootcdflopcp is called it searches for differences between RAM and CD. For each different file, it checks if it is listed in the files ignore, remove or change on floppy. If it is listed in change it will be saved to change.tgz on floppy. If it is listed in remove the file will be removed from ram next boot time. If it is listed in ignore it will be ignored. If it is not listed at all you will be interactively asked what to do. OPTIONS
-v The option "-v" (verbose) adds messages on running. -d <device> Use another device instead of "/dev/fd0" to save changes. FILES
FLOPPY:/remove If a file is listed here the file will be deleted from ram next boot time. FLOPPY:/change If a file is listed here bootcdflopcp will save it in change.tgz. FLOPPY:/ignore If a file is listed here bootcdflopcp will ignore changes to this file. FLOPPY:/change.tgz Here all changed files are stored in gzipped tar format. SEE ALSO

NAME
bootcdwrite - build a bootcd image from a running system SYNOPSIS
bootcdwrite [-s] [-c <config_directory>] [-only_floppy] DESCRIPTION
bootcdwrite is used to write a standard Linux Installation to cd. The Installation must fit on one CD. It is possible to copy a system mounted per NFS to a local CD writer. It is also possible to only create an image of the CD for later use. It is important that the kernel can access the cdrom on the system, where you want to boot from the CD, without having to load any modules. (Because to load modules from CD, the kernel must have access to CD before). If this is not the case you have first to create a new kernel with CD-support built in. If something goes wrong with bootcdwrite, the user will be given the chance to correct the problem. bootcdwrite starts many commands. If a command exits with an exit code != 0, or if a command produces unknown output on stdout or stderr, the command and the output will be shown to the user. He gets the option to exit, retry the failed command, or to ignore the failed command. OPTIONS
-s means silent and canbe used to to disable interactive questions and to try to ignore errors. -c config_directory change the default path of the directory including the configuration (/etc/bootcd). -only_floppy only a bootfloppy (to boot an existing bootcd) has to be created. Currently no other options can be specified on command line. All configuration has to be done in the config files. FILES
/etc/bootcd/bootcdwrite.conf Configuration for bootcdwrite. /var/spool/bootcd/ Here the image of the CD which will be created will be stored temporarily by bootcdwrite. WARNING - You need a lot of disk-space here. You can change this location with variable VAR in bootcdwrite.conf. SEE ALSO
