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>Backing up windows partitions.</para>
35<sect2 id="AEN13"><title>3.4.1. Windows ME/95/98</title>
36<para>Verify that the partition is listed in /etc/fstab and is
37mounted (e.g. /dev/hda1). Mondo will take care of everything else.
38The files will be archived just like all other files in the live
39file system. At restore-time, Mondo will take care of the boot
40sector of /dev/hda1 prior to the restore.</para>
41<para>Note: if Windows ME/95/98 is not located on /dev/hda1 or
42/dev/sda1, then Mondo will not take care of the boot sector of
43/dev/hda1. The user will have to boot from a DOS floppy and run SYS
44C: to correct the Windows boot sector.</para>
45</sect2><sect2 id="AEN13"><title>3.4.2. Windows NT4/2K/XP</title>
46<para>Windows NT4/2K/XP typically use the NTFS file system, not
47VFAT.. The user should use '-x /dev/hda1' (or whichever device the
48Windows partition resides). Mondo will treat the partition as a
49biggiefile. Mondo will also add an entry to the mountlist to
50reflect the size and type of the partition. The user may not edit
51that partition's size at restore-time (for obvious reasons).</para>
52<para>Please bear in mind that Mondo was written for Linux users.
53If Mondo does not backup or restore your Windows system well, you
54might want to consider paying for 1-to-1 technical support.
55Ironically, the only people to pay for 1-to-1 technical support
56have been Linux users, whereas Windows users want a free ride. That
57is one reason why the Linux community gives me warm fuzzies.</para>
