Message:

Replace the contents of the README files for mondo and mindi with
something hopefully slightly more useful.
Given that MondoRescue? hosting is in a state of flux, I'll be happy to
update things once the dust has settled (or before if required).

     14bare metal if necessary. MondoRescue is in use by numerous blue-chip
     15enterprises and large organizations, dozens of smaller companies, and tens of
     16thousands of users.

     18MondoRescue is comprehensive. MondoRescue supports LVM, RAID, ext2, ext3, JFS,
     19XFS, ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional file systems easily. It
     20supports adjustments in disk geometry, including migration from non-RAID to
     21RAID. MondoRescue runs on all major Linux distributions and FreeBSD and is
     22getting better all the time. You may even use it to backup non-Linux
     23partitions, such as NTFS.
