>>A: a running windows OS in order to create a core remaster
The ghost linux files are also on the GSS 2.5 installation cd (/mnt/sr0/Linux/LinuxTools.tgz)
>>B: a virtual linux machine with 256MB RAM
I just wanted to save a few cds during the remaster..anyone can burn the original tinycore cd and boot a real machine to create the ezremaster
>>C: a second running windows OS with a pxe server.
Or a linux server for pxe. Linux is more stable. Just add an samba share for image storage.
>>... and all that just to be able to run the linux version of ghost...
Well when you put it like that it is a lot
I do prefer to run ghost from my parted magic pxe image. Until I figure out why occasional storage modules need to be script launched like hpsa, which only works on newer hp proliants. I have been putting a lot more effort into making tinycore play nice with all the machines I image regularly. I would just use clonezilla but there are drawbacks, like the fact it can't shrink partitions easily during restore. Truth is, I just love the wbar in tinycore and the smaller overall size too much to stop trying to perfect it. Hence the script to help reduce human error as I remaster.
>>then I really don't get the point.
I just wanted a smaller pxe like tinycore os that has lots of drivers to help ghost image newer hardware.
