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 ;-)

34History</title>
35<para>Mondo Rescue was created in December 1999 as a utility to
36clone Linux/Windows installations. Norton Ghost would not do the
37job, and my boss wanted to jump on the Linux bandwagon. So, I wrote
38a few scripts and shoehorned them into the latest Linux-Mandrake
39CD. Since that time, Mondo grew into a disaster recovery suite for
40Linux and Windows. Mondo forced me to learn about the kernel, its
41initrd initial ramdisk, modules, library dependencies, disk
42partitioning, and the myriad differences between the Top 10 Linux
43distributions.</para>
44<para>The first formal release was made on February 18th, 2000.
45Mondo is currently one of the top five Linux backup/restore
46programs. Mondo has been compared favorably to ArcServe, Arkeia and
47BRU. Although Mondo lacks the more advanced, enterprise-level
48features of ArcServe and Arkeia, for workstations and small- to
49medium-size servers it is ideal because it is small, fast,
50efficient, stable, comes with source code, and is being actively
51developed and supported.</para>
