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 ;-)

34<para>I hope you don't have to restore from scratch very often.
35It's nerve-wracking until you realize that Mondo's restore engine
36is very reliable. I backup and restore my system 2 or 3 times a
37week as part of the testing process. I have no other backup regime,
38so it had better work.</para>
39<para>If you find that you cannot make your PC boot from the CD,
40take heart: the first backup CD of each set contains floppy disk
41images to give you the same functionality as the CD (minus the
42archives, of course) on floppies. Remember, your Mondo CD is a
43fully functional CD-based mini-distribution as well as a recovery
44CD.</para>
