1 Hi
3 I'm not sure if this post should be here or in gentoo-user.
5 I'm interested in creating my own CD and floppy minidistributions using
6 Gentoo. I can't seem to find any info on this.
8 There are two things I need at the moment
10 (1)A floppy based mini distro contaning afs and parted for dealing with
11 linux+win boxes.(If you know about one allready could you send me a private
12 email?)
14 (2)Since I mess around with my system more than I should :) it would be nice
15 if I could create a CD distro contaning parted/sfdisk, tar, gzip and a huge
16 tarball contaning my whole system. A bare metal recovery would probably take
17 less than fifteen minutes using this method which is a Good Thing (tm).
19 I could probably use the boot image from the install CD for (2) so I
20 wouldn't need to create a distro for this but general info on how to do so
21 (building the system/creating bootable CDs and floppies) collected in one
22 place would be useful to me and probably others.
