NAME

bootcdflopcp - copy changes made after booting from bootcd to floppy

SYNOPSIS

bootcdflopcp [-v] [-d device]

DESCRIPTION

bootcd2disk is used to write a running bootcd built with bootcdwrite to disk.

The bootcd can be copied to one or more Disk Partitions seen by the running system. It is possible to let bootcd2disk automatically find a disk, make partitions on it, copy the cd to the disk and make the disk bootable.

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. bootcdflopcp 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
be verbose


-d device

Use device instead of /dev/fd0 to save changes.


FILES

FLOPPY:/remove
Each line in the file remove on the floppy disk is a file name. Files listed will be deleted from ram next boot time.


FLOPPY:/ignore

Each line in the file ignore on the floppy disk is a file name. Files listes will be ignored by bootcdflopcp.


FLOPPY:/change.tgz

Files in change.tgz on the floppy disk will be copied to ram next boot time.
