Zero disk / zero CD install?
I was wondering if there's a good unofficial cd image for a cdinstall that
I might be able to use on my aging laptop.
I was trying the sarge netinst with grub,
rsync me@elsewhere:dnl/sarge-i386-netinst.iso /boot/
mount /boot/sarge-i386-netinst.iso /mnt/tmp
cp -a /mnt/tmp/install /isolinuxDEB
with a grub entry per
title Debian sarge install
kernel (hd0,0)/isolinuxDEB/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram devfs=mount,dall
Reboot, and then the installer starts up but can't
find the cdrom. I tried going to a shell to try to mount the image:
mount /dev/disks/disk1/part1 /mnt
mount /mnt/sarge-i386-netinst.iso /cdrom -o loop=loop1
but sadly, there doesn't seem to be a loopback driver (loop.o) in the
netinst config. If loop.o were there, perhaps I could manually mount the
non-CD and continue the install.
