Most of you probably know what this is about, so please forgive me
for the repetition - you'll see why later.
The ILUG bootable business card CD is based on the model from Linuxcare (see
www.linuxcare.com/bootable_cd). Physically, it's a mini-CD with two
sides flattened so that you end up with a CD a little bigger than a standard
business card. I can't do any better than the description from the web site
The Bootable Business Card is a complete miniature Linux system on a
bootable CD-ROM disc in the size and shape of a business card. It is a
bootable mini-CD which should work in almost any PC-compatible machine
capable of booting CD-ROMs. Boot our Bootable Business Card and you have
108MB of usable software at your fingertips. It contains a full complement
of recovery and rescue software. On the booted system are over 500
diagnostic programs, utilities, and networking clients.
Carry it in your pocket, and immediately have the means to boot any PC as a
networked Linux workstation, examine and repair a damaged system, diagnose
network problems, make backups, mirror hard drives... you can have unmatched
flexibility and power in a variety of unexpected situations.
The ILUG model will include ssh and its wvdial configuration will include
details for the call by call charging (I won't call them free, because
they're not) ISPs in Ireland. It will also have some cosmetic changes for
ILUG i.e. logo, contact details etc.
The reason for this email is to once again solicit any requests for
additions/alterations and to gauge further interest. I already have more
orders than I have blank CDs to fulfil them, so depending on the response to
this, I will either order some more blanks, or have to trim some people's
orders, although I hope to avoid the latter.
