Where Live CD ISO image?

2003-12-30 Thread Francisco Reyes
Where can I download a Live CD ISO? The only place I was able to find was http://www.freesbie.org, but that's basically some scripts on how to do an ISO from one's system. Was hopping to find something already made. Want this just for repairs and such when having problems with the HD.

Backing up programs

2003-12-31 Thread Francisco Reyes
With every HD problem I loose less and less data. On my last episode I lost only the current day's worth of data (backup at night). However I realised that I also need to backup programs installed on the machine. It takes a long time to rebuild all packages (I had a list of ports I had installed).

Anyone has set one of those up? In particular how did you communicate with the machine? Do I need a null modem cable? Which program you used and settings? From the ports it seems minicom may do the trick. If using the CF card in the machine how did you find out what was the device name of your
