Sorry if this question has been on here before but the only reference
I could extract said look at /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ramdisk.txt.
Well, I just did a find and it aint there!
I have Slackware 3.0.0 Kernel 1.2.13.
When I installed I foolishly thought that I would still need a MSDOS
partition. I ended up with 600Mb for MSDOS, 40Mb for my root partition
and 350Mb for a /usr partition. Guess what? My root partition is
bursting and there's still loads of good software I'd like to install.
What I'm attempting to do is create a ramdisk so I can boot linux off
a floppy and then use ftape to restore all my data.
I need to know a How to make the (root) ramdisk. (I think I know what
files I need). or b. Where there is a suitable FAQ. I read the
Bootdisk-HOWTO but that didn't really help.
Please don't suggest config ' ing so that my system runs in it's
present state. 600Mb for MSDOS is a criminal waste.
Sorry the post is so long.
Cheers in advance,
