121
122 <p>In order to create <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>, I wrote <b>create-clonezilla-sysresccd</b>.<br><br>
123
124 <b>create-clonezilla-sysresccd</b> is a BASH shell script that will help you join these popular linux live CDs. The original CDs have to be downloaded beforehand, and stored as ISO files. All the features of the original ISO/CDs are present in the new multi-boot CD.<br><br>
125
126 The script copies all files from both ISOs to a temporary folder, integrates a new isolinux configuration file and creates a new ISO file that can be burnt to CD.<br><br>
127
128 <a href="http://syslinux.zytor.com/iso.php" target="_blank">Isolinux</a> is a so called CD boot manager, that is controled by a configuration file called <b>isolinux.cfg</b>. The current implementation - based on <b>Clonezilla Live</b> - displays a list of boot options to the user.</p>
129
130 <!-- Quick creation of the CD -->
131 <H2><a name="quick"></a>Quick creation of the CD <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span><!-- <span class="changed">&nbsp;Updated&nbsp;</span>--></H2>
132 <p>Open <b>/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/profiles.conf</b> in a text editor and:</p>
133 <ul>
134 <li>Add the lines<br>
135 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>profile[3]=Multi-boot</b><br>
136 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>sysCDP[3]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/systemrescuecd.iso</font></b><br>
137 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cloneCDP[3]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/clonezilla-live.iso</font></b><br><br>
138 if <b>sysCDP[3]</b> is already defined (profile <b>3</b> already exists), just use the <b>first</b> available number. This goes for every entry in this section.
139 </li>
140 <li>If you want to create the full CD, add the line<br>
141 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cfgFileP[3]=/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/<font color="red">isolinux-full.cfg</font></b><br>
142 or else add the line<br>
143 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cfgFileP[3]=/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/<font color="red">isolinux-minimal.cfg</font></b></li>
144 <li>If you want to use a customized splash screen, create a 640x480 32-bit png image file (for example <b>splash-screen.png</b>) providing your logo, personal page, email address etc., and add the line<br>
145 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>splashP[3]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/splash-screen.png</font></b><br>
146 or use the default by adding<br>
147 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>splashP[3]=<font color="red">/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/default-ocswp.png</font></b></li>
148
149 <li>Add any other variable in the file to suit your needs</li>
150 </ul>
151 <p>When you are done, create your CD by executing form console:</p>
152 <p class="newcode"><font color="Blue">create-clonezilla-sysresccd -p 3</font></p>
153 <p>
154 <b>Note<br></b>The CD you will create following this procedure will lack the customization I have done. If you wanted to have it, you would have to follow the procedure introduced in the page <a href="custom-cd.html" title=" How to create the custom CDs ">Custom&nbsp;CDs</a>.

344 <p>As you can see, a profile can define all the working parameters for a CD creating session. If any of these parameters are left blank, the corresponding value from the configuration file will be used. If this is blank too, the user will be asked to insert it by hand.<br><br>
345 In order to use profile No 1, you should execute the command:</p>
346 <p class="newcode"><font color="Blue">create-clonezilla-sysresccd -p 1</font></p>
347 <p>
348 In order to see the active profiles and select one to use, you should execute the command:</p>
349 <p class="newcode"><font color="Blue">create-clonezilla-sysresccd -s</font>

370 <p>Apart from editing the <b>isolinux.cfg</b> file, the user can also remove or add a floppy disk image to the CD.</p>
371 <p>Floppy disk images are present in the <b>/bootdisk</b> folder on the CD, which corresponds to the <b>/root/tmp/clonezilla-sysresccd/bootdisk</b> folder, while creating the ISO file. Copying a floppy disk image file in this folder and adding an entry to the cfg file, is all one has to do to add extra features to the CD.</p>
372
373
374 <!-- Example -->
375 <H3><a name="project-ex1"></a>Example 1 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
376 <p>Suppose you want to add a floppy disk image (<b>myfloppy.img</b>) to the final CD. You execute the program, and when prompted to copy additional files, you copy the image file in the <b>/root/tmp/clonezilla-sysresccd/bootdisk</b> folder. Then you open the cfg file you will use and copy/paste a floppy image entry. Finally you edit the pasted entry so that it will use your new floppy image.<br><br>
377
378 To do that you can use the FreeDOS list entry, and convert it as it shows in the array below.</p>
379
380 <div class="otherpage">
381 <table class="bordertable" cellpadding="15"><!--with-border-->
382 <tr>
383 <td class="bordertable" style="font-family: 'Courier New' , Courier, Monospace;">

399 &nbsp;&nbsp;append initrd=<font color="Red">myfloppy.img</font>
400 </td>
401 </tr>
402 </table>
403 </div>
404
405 <p>Then you get back to the program, press ENTER, and the new ISO file will contain your new floppy image.<br><br>In order to remove the FreeDOS floppy image from the final CD, all you have to do is delete the file <b>freedos.img</b> from folder <b>/root/tmp/clonezilla-sysresccd/bootdisk</b>, and the corresponding entry form the cfg file.<br><br>
406 One could even try to integrate one more rescue CD (say <a href="http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/" target="_blank">Damn Small Linux</a>), if skillful enough.<br><br>
407 A final thing you might want to do is add html files to provide help to the user.</p>
408
409
410 <!-- Example 2 -->
411 <H3><a name="project-ex2"></a>Example 2 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
412 <p>An interesting feature is that the default entry of the boot list can be set, so that is gets activated after the time interval defined has elapsed. I usually set booting from the first hard disk as default, to avoid accidental booting of one of the distros (in case the CD has been forgotten in the drive).<br><br>
413
414 You can achieve this by changing this entry.</p>

416 <div class="otherpage">

441 <H3><a name="project-ex3"></a>Example 3 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
442 <p>One more thing you can do is add "empty" entries in the boot list, that will be displayed as separators for the other entries. This way a grouping of similar entries is possible.<br><br>
443
444 Using again as template the FreeDOS entry, the changes to be done appear in the following table.</p>
