I tried it and i couldn't get it to make a proper bootable cdrom. It
booted allright but then it gave errors and i couldn't load
mondo-restore. I then dropped it for mkCDRec
which seems to be more successful in doing just that. I even tried the
latest versions (compiled source code from cvs) and combinations of
different mondo and mindi versions and i eventually gave up. I wasted
some 20 hours fiddling with it and finally got fed up. Besides i didn't
have many empty cd's left :)

I does look like a good product but it doesn't seem to like debian.
