Knoppix CEBIT 5.0 boot from ISO on hdd (ntfs/xp partition as well), custom hostname cheatcode added & ext2 fix



Hello,
For those of you who do not want to or cannot burn a cd/dvd of
http://torrent.kurz.net/KNOPPIX_V5.0DVD-2006-02-25-DE.iso.torrent
I have updated a minirt_usb5.gz boot ramdisk allowing to boot from
the iso file on the hdd and customize the hostname using a cheatcode,
cf:
http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=101334#101334
& Windows Partition PMI: http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Win_Partition

The minirt_usb5.gz boot ramdisk also includes the ext2 bug fix.
The custom (fixed or dynamic) hostname syntax is:
"hostname=mycustomname" or
"hostname=auto-clock" (date+time) or
"hostname=auto-mac" (eth0 mac address)

Best Regards,
Gilles van Ruymbeke
