1. On Dell PowereEdge 2800 server (no floppy) on this system, I would
like to make emergency bootable CD so that I can bring up the machine
using OLD kernel in case there is problem in booting using new compiled
kernel( I have to recompile the kernel using HIGHMEM64G=y in order
toaccess 8GB memory on system). I want to prepare myself, in case there
is a problem with new OS. I am using GRUB as boot loader.
NB: There is no need to remove the old kernel, when you install the new
from aptitude's information for mindi:
creates boot/root disks based on your system
Mindi is a script to create boot/root disks based on your system. It
uses your kernel, modules, tools and libraries. It is used for the Mondo
disaster recovery suite to create the boot media.
2. Similary on my laptop (no CD drive on it), I would like to make
emergency floppy disk. The laptop is running Debian 3.1 with 2.4.27 kernel.
I installed debian on a usb-drive for emergency and other uses. Requires
no cd-drive, but usb-bootable bios.
