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

57    <DD CLASS="mvd-P">Restore step-by-step, or restore a subset of the
58    archives. This is the method you should mainly use for your recovery needs.</P>

64    automatically and unattended. Warning: This does exactly what is
65    says, so be carefull using it.</P>

70    <DD CLASS="mvd-P">Boot to a shell prompt. If you want to do anything
71    creative, you should boot into Expert Mode. It's called expert, I
72    think that says it all.</P>
73   </DL>
74  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
75   If the CD is not found during the initial restore CD boot attempt,
76   reboot the PC a second time prior to reporting failure. Occasional
77   timing errors and hardware/software/system conflicts do occur.</P>
