38  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
39   Mindi Linux creates a set of boot/root floppy disk images that will
40   let you perform basic system maintenance on your Linux distro. The
41   principal virtues of Mindi's boot disks are the fact that they
42   contain your kernel, modules, tools and libraries. You can ask for
43   additional binaries (or other files) to be included on the kit. The
44   libraries will be added for you.</P>
45  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
46   Whichever modules were loaded at backup-time, they are reloaded at
47   boot-time. So, in theory, you will boot into almost the same
48   environment as you were in when you backed up. If you want to add
49   files to your Mindi boot disks, edit '&lt;INSTALLPATH OF MINDI&gt;/mindi/deplist.txt'
50    and add the files to that list. The added files and dependencies,
51   will be spread across the data disks at run-time.</P>
52  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
53   Mindi makes sure that Mondo has all the tools it needs at boot-time.
54   Mondo uses fdisk, mkfs, cat, less, more, afio, gzip, bzip2, your
55   keyboard configuration, your glibc libraries, your <I>other</I> 
56   libraries, your kernel, your modules, ... a lot! Mindi takes care of
57   all that, so that Mondo can get on with the job of backing up or
58   restoring your data.</P>
59  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
60   Mindi is also handy for making boot CDs/disks which stand on their
61   own. You do not need Mondo. Indeed, if you like, you could use
62   another backup/restore program with Mindi. Just add it to Mindi's
63   dependency list (type 'locate deplist.txt' to find it). Mindi will
64   include your software on its boot CD/disks the next time you run mindi.</P>
