I've uploaded tomsrtbt-1.6.12.tar.gz to Sunsite to go in system/recovery,
and to where it is now,
and submitted the updated .lsm file to the LSM database.

It's a boot/root rescue/emergency floppy image with more stuff than can fit.
Bzip2, 1722Mb formatting, and tight compilation options helped jam a lot on.

It is useful for "learn unix on a floppy" as it runs from ramdisk, includes
the man-pages for everything, and behaves in a generally predictable way.

The home page is:  There's also a list.

New features/capabilities include: loadkeys, rshd, inetd, miterm, telnet.

Features list then .lsm file follow:

1. BusyBox can't open /etc/profile

Hi everyone

I am a 6-hour newbie! I've just installed the Red hat 7.3.
Installation was smooth and complete. Apparently, the network card is
the only thing which was not recognized.

After first boot, I received a message to configure the Network
Device. I tried but each time end to an error message. I skipped it.
Then it showed " Please press Enter to activate this console"
Pressing Enter, returned this:

"Couldn't open file /etc/profile'
BusyBox  v0.51 (2001.05.10-17:06+0000) Built-in shell (lash)
Enter help' .

I stuck to  /# , and commands like  startx  anb Xconfigurator return
error message. I have no access to GUI.

I use a boot manager and there are Win Me and 2000 on this HD.

Is there any problem in installation or in me?

Any help is appreciated.
