Last change on this file since 323 was 323, checked in by bcornec, 15 years ago

Initial import of the documentation in SGML format.
Since the original SGML file and LyX files have not been published,
thus not preserved, I'll restart from scratch by importing the HTML
doc converted into SGML/DocBook.
Then real work begins ;-)

82the call.</para>

84chugging away. If Mondo needs additional CD-R(W) then it will ask

144<para>The resultant ISO's can be burned to CD's if you want (which
145isn't a good idea unless you're a Mondo expert because they'll try
146to restore over a network by default, which is silly cos the
147archives are on the CD's). Or, you can boot from the Mindi floppies
148(or mondorescue.iso) and hit ENTER a few times to restore.</para>
