Distinctly we remember, 'Twas in the bleak December, each desperate news group member wrought pleas of help upon his door. The door of he who is called by but one name, like Saruman or Starsky. He is... the Shadowman. Though he has no palid bust of Pallas, just above his chamber door, he's back- forevermore- to help those who would help themselves, if they only could.
Got a question that you'd like Shadowman to answer? Ask him.
Ronilo M, got a little stuckilo, then:
Bruce T, says 'rescue' me:
mount -o loop rescuecd.iso /mount/point cd /mount/point[For those wondering what the heck just happened, you can mount an image (.iso, .img, .etc) to your file system virtually on what's called a loopback. Adding '-o loop' tells it to do so.]
And remove some things from the stage2.img. How you ask? Well cp the stage2.img somewhere like your home dir Shadowman is currently running Fedora so it was in /mount/point/Fedora/base in this case), and unmount the rescuecd.iso, then mount stage2.img like:
mount -o loop stage2.img /mount/point cd /mount/pointAnd remove tools you know you won't need. Then unmount the stage2.img, re-mount the rescuecd.iso, and cp the stage2.img back in, unmount that and burn it.
If you're really sure you want to put it on a floppy, because well, you're probably insane rather than lazy, you can *try* and mount the bootdisk.img, squeeze 70 to 80k more out of it (i.e. attempt to build a leaner kernel and initrd, and get fdisk on there *and* get it to not expect to boot into install or to your existing install and drop to a shell instead). You may find in Google that someone has done the latter already, but there's a greater liklihood of success and a guarantee of coolness in the former.
