Using 5.0 boot disks w/ 5.02 cdrom

Using 5.0 boot disks w/ 5.02 cdrom

Post by Roger Corneli » Thu, 12 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I received my SES shipment a few days ago which included the 5.02 cdrom,
but no boot disks.  I assume then that I should use my existing 5.0 boot
disks to install 5.02.  Is that correct?

It would probably work, but you can also copy a boot disk image from the
CD-ROM itself.  The readme/liesmich/lisezmoi files at the top of the CDROM
directory tree tell you about it.

That *might* work.  I'm not sure.

Unfortunately I don't have my 5.0.2 CD-ROM handy.  I'm almost positive
a 5.0.2 N00 image can be found somewhere on the CD.  Look under
/opt/images...?

The are several disk images on the 3.2v5.0.2 cdrom.
The bottom of /readme.txt contains instructions for
creating the boot disk and the BTLD (AHS 5.2) disk.

/images/ahsbtld         AHS 5.2 BTLD disk image.

/images/boot            3.2v5.0.2 N00 boot disk image.

/images/ipxspx          NVT.EXE Novell Virtual Terminal.
(Why do we get 1.4MB uncompressed image for one 25KB executable?)

/images/nuc             Two disks for NUC (Netware Unix Client)
                        NLM's for Novell 3.1x and 4.0 and a bunch
                        of goodies (TELNETD.NLM).

Trick:  If you want a directory listing of what's inside these
msdos disk images, run:
        cd /mnt/images/nuc
        /usr/bin/dosdir 01              (01 is the name of the image file)
        /usr/bin/dosdir 01:/SYSTEM/*    (SYSTEM is a subdirectory)

Also, you can identify disk image types with:
        cd /mnt/images/nuc
        /bin/dtype 01

None of this appears anywhere in the various text documents
on the 3.2v5.0.2 CDROM.
