108
109 <p>In order to create <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b>, I wrote <b>create-clonezilla-sysresccd</b>.<br><br>
110
111 <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>
112
113 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>
114
115 <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. <b>create-clonezilla-sysresccd</b> provides two "sample" cfg files, to set the visible items of the boot options list:</p>
116 <ul>
117 <li><b>isolinux-full.cfg</b><br>This file contains all the features present in the original CDs</li>
118 <li><b>isolinux-minimal.cfg</b><br>Contains only these list items that are enough to utilize a Backup-Restore system<br>This means that the remaining features are invisible to the user, but they still exist in the CD.</li>
119 </ul>
120 <p>
121 <b>Important</b> <!--<span class="changed">&nbsp;New&nbsp;</span>--><br>Do NOT change these two files. They will be overwritten with every program update, to provide new features. Instead use them as templates for your <a href="#profiles">profiles</a>.
122 </p>
123
124
125 <!-- Quick creation of the CD -->
126 <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>
127 <p>Open <b>/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/profiles.conf</b> in a text editor and:</p>
128 <ul>
129 <li>Add the lines<br>
130 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>profile[2]=Multi-boot</b><br>
131 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>sysCDP[2]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/systemrescuecd.iso</font></b><br>
132 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cloneCDP[2]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/clonezilla-live.iso</font></b><br><br>
133 if <b>sysCDP[2]</b> is already defined (profile <b>2</b> already exists), just use the <b>first</b> available number. This goes for every entry in this section.
134 </li>
135 <li>If you want to create the full CD, add the line<br>
136 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cfgFileP[2]=/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/<font color="red">isolinux-full.cfg</font></b><br>
137 or else add the line<br>
138 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>cfgFileP[2]=/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/<font color="red">isolinux-minimal.cfg</font></b></li>
139 <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>
140 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>splashP[2]=<font color="red">/location/of/your/splash-screen.png</font></b><br>
141 or use the default by adding<br>
142 &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>splashP[2]=<font color="red">/root/.clonezilla-sysresccd/default-ocswp.png</font></b></li>
143
144 <li>Add any other variable in the file to suit your needs</li>
145 </ul>
146 <p>When you are done, create your CD by executing form console:</p>
147 <p class="newcode"><font color="Blue">create-clonezilla-sysresccd -p 2</font></p>
148 <p>
149 <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>.

365 <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>
366 <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>
367
368
369 <!-- Example -->
370 <H3><a name="project-ex1"></a>Example 1 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
371 <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>
372
373 To do that you can use the FreeDOS list entry, and convert it as it shows in the array below.</p>
374
375 <div class="otherpage">
376 <table class="bordertable" cellpadding="15"><!--with-border-->
377 <tr>
378 <td class="bordertable" style="font-family: 'Courier New' , Courier, Monospace;">

381 &nbsp;&nbsp;# MENU HIDE<br>
382 &nbsp;&nbsp;MENU LABEL FreeDOS<br>
383 &nbsp;&nbsp;# MENU PASSWD<br>
384 &nbsp;&nbsp;kernel memdisk<br>
385 &nbsp;&nbsp;append initrd=freedos.img

388 label <font color="Red">MyFloppy</font><br>

394 &nbsp;&nbsp;append initrd=<font color="Red">myfloppy.img</font>
395 </td>
396 </tr>
397 </table>
398 </div>
399
400 <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>
401 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>
402 A final thing you might want to do is add html files to provide help to the user.</p>
403
404
405 <!-- Example 2 -->
406 <H3><a name="project-ex2"></a>Example 2 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
407 <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>
408
409 You can achieve this by changing this entry.</p>

436 <H3><a name="project-ex3"></a>Example 3 [<a href="#project-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
437 <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>
438
439 Using again as template the FreeDOS entry, the changes to be done appear in the following table.</p>
