118 <!-- Intro -->
120 <H2 style="margin-top: 0;"><a name="sysresccd-intro"></a>Intro <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#sysresccd-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H2>
122 <p><b>SystemRescueCD</b> is an excellent Live CD. It contains cloning software too (<a href="http://www.fsarchiver.org/Main_Page" target="_blank">FSArchiver</a> and <a href="http://www.partimage.org/Main_Page" target="_blank">partimage</a>, to be spesific), but is unable to clone a whole disk, instead of only individual partitions.<br>
123 <br>
124 <b>Clonezilla Live</b> is a great cloning solution, but it is unable to do anything but clone. For general system administration, you need a lot more functions - like these offered by <b>SystemRescueCD</b>.<br>
125 <br>
126 <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b> has all of the functions of both discs. It's a multi boot CD, so switching between CDs requires a reboot, but using both individual discs requires switching the physical disc - in addition to rebooting.<br>
127 <br>
128 But, of course, to be able to use <b>SystemRescueCD</b>'s functions, you need to know how to use them. We don't have permission to redistribute <b>SystemRescueCD</b> documentation, so this page contains only just enough information to allow you to look for more help in <b>SystemRescueCD</b> documentation.</p>
132 <!-- Boot options -->
134 <H2><a name="boot-options"></a>Which boot option to pick? <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#sysresccd-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H2>
136 <p>Here is a list of the most important boot options:<br>
137 <br>
138 <!--not-on-txt--><ol>
139 <li>SystemRescueCd: default boot options</li>
140 <li>SystemRescueCd: all files cached to memory (docache)</li>
141 <li>SystemRescueCd: framebuffer console in high resolution</li>
142 <li>SystemRescueCd: do not ask for keyboard, use US keymap</li>
143 <li>SystemRescueCd: directly start the graphical environment</li>
144 <li>SystemRescueCd: 64bit kernel with default options</li>
145 </ol>
146 <!--end-not-on-txt-->
150 </p>
152 <p>If you're accustomed to graphical environment, choose the option <b>directly start the graphical environment</b>. In graphical environment you're able to use graphical programs, like <b>GParted</b> and <b>Mozilla Firefox</b>. Terminals are also available, so using graphical environment doesn't prevent using command line. The only negative thing of graphical environment is that it slows booting process down a bit - and it's often just plain unneeded.<br>
153 <br>
154 If you're accustomed to command line and know already that you're not going to use any graphical program, choose the option <b>framebuffer console in high resolution</b>. Booting to command line is a bit faster process than booting to graphical environment, and you can start X manually later.<br>
155 <br>
156 Alternatively, you can select <b>default boot options</b>. However, if you do so, the text in the screen will be bigger and you'll be able to see less text at once.<br>
157 <br>
158 If you want to chroot on an existing GNU/Linux partition containing 64-bit programs, select <b>64bit kernel with default options</b>. Even if you don't want to chroot, 64-bit kernel may be a bit faster than 32-bit one. However, 64-bit kernel requires a x86-64 processor, for example AMD Athlon 64 or Intel Core 2.<br>
159 <br>
160 You need the option <b>all files cached to memory (docache)</b> if you plan to burn discs while using <b>SystemRescueCD</b>. The option copies the whole <b>SystemRescueCD</b> to the memory of the computer during the boot process, allowing you to put another disc to your CD/DVD writer while using <b>SystemRescueCD</b>. The negative thing is that reading all the contents of the disc slows boot process down a lot.<br>
161 <br>
162 Finally, the option <b>do not ask for keyboard, use US keymap</b> may be useful if you have an English keyboard. By default, <b>SystemRescueCD</b> asks the keymap to use during boot. If you don't answer in 20 seconds, <b>SystemRescueCD</b> chooses the US keymap. However, if you have chosen the option <b>do not ask for keyboard, use US keymap</b> in the boot menu, <b>SystemRescueCD</b> chooses the US keymap immediately. No waiting, no questions.</p>

170 <H3><a name="graphical-mode"></a>HELP!!! Where are the desktop and Start menu? <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#sysresccd-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H3>
171 <p>Simply type this command and press ENTER twice:</p>

175 <H3><a name="internet"></a>Connecting to the Internet <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#sysresccd-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H3>
177 <p>The CD doesn't contain any <b>SystemRescueCD</b> documentation, because we don't have permission to redistribute it. In addition, our time is limited and we can't rewrite it all. So, you need to connect to the Internet to be able to read <b>SystemRescueCD</b>'s official online documentation.<br>
178 <br>
179 <b>SystemRescueCD</b> establishes an Internet connection automatically, if you're in a network using DHCP. Nowadays, most people are.</p>
180 <!--empty line-->
181 <p>If the network doesn't use DHCP, you have to configure Internet settings by hand. You should be able to do so if you've previously configured your settings in the operating system you normally use. First, stop the <b>NetworkManager</b> daemon:</p>
182 <!--empty line-->
183 <p class="newcode">/etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop</p>
184 <!--empty line-->
185 <p>After that, run the following command:</p>
186 <!--empty line-->
187 <p class="newcode">net-setup <font color="Green">eth0</font></p>
188 <!--empty line-->
189 <p><b>Note:</b> In the command replace <b><font color="Green">eth0</font></b> with the network interface you want to use.</p>
193 <!-- Stopping to use the CD -->
195 <H2><a name="stop"></a>When you're done <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#sysresccd-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H2>
197 <p>When you're done, you naturally want to either shut the computer down or reboot. Wait! Don't do it yet!<br>
198 <br>
199 Both I and Spiros have found out that letting a live CD to automatically unmount partitions is often a bad idea. It can damage the filesystems of the partitions which were mounted when the computer was shut down and destroy any files in the partitions, even them you didn't use within the CD.<br>
200 <br>
201 So, I recommend unmounting them refore shutdown or reboot. Just run these commands when you're done.<br>
202 <br>
203 If you want to reboot:</p>
204 <!--empty line-->
205 <p class="newcode">cd<br>
206 umount -a<br>
207 reboot</p>
208 <!--empty line-->
209 <p>If you want to shut down:</p>
210 <p class="newcode">cd<br>
211 umount -a<br>
212 poweroff</p>
