Hi all,

I have downloaded the 6.2-RELEASE ISO images, (Disk 1, Disk 2, and Boot Only), and was wondering...

If I use the boot only CD to boot up the new server I am getting, can I use it to:

FDisk and Disklabel the new HD (SAS),


ifconfig the NIC,


Setup a network share (as a client),

Depends on what you mean by network share. If by nfs, then in a limited sense yes. SMB/CIFS, no.

Download DUMPS from an other machine,


RESTORE those dumps,


the aim here is to clone a previous machine. So what I guess I am asking is, does the boot only machine give us all the working tools as would a copy installed to the local bood HD?


Not really. For that you need to create your own custom boot CDs.
