BootRoot creates a boot disk with lilo, a kernel and an initrd image. The initrd script mounts another root disk with a compressed (gzip or bzip2) filesystem. The root filesystem isnt made by this program, but there lots of compressed filesytems out there to use. You can use a bzip2 compressed filesystem, this program is easy to use, and it provides a framework showing a simple initrd method which you can freely modify. The four steps to making a Boot Root set. 1). Grab the Perl Script right here .. boot_root give it a name .. umm .. boot_root. 2). Make sure the bang line points to the right place: $ which perl /usr/bin/perl $ grep "perl -w" boot_root #!/usr/bin/perl -w 3). Make it executable: $ chmod 755 boot_root 4). Put it in one of your LIB PATHS: $ echo $PATH /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:.: $ mv boot_root /usr/bin 5). Run it, and have lots of fun! More directions can be found at the beginning of the script..
