    7697691. Depending of the distribution, mbr.bin could be in another directory.
    7707702. Be aware that "syslinux -s /dev/sdc1" will not make bootable the USB device through the Debian and Ubuntu distributions that use syslinux 4.02 (Ubuntu 10.10, Ubuntu 11.04, Debian Squeeze), until Canonical and Debian decide to upgrade to syslinux 4.03. Meanwhile, the solution is to replace it by: "syslinux --stupid /dev/sdc1".

     772== Q43/ "/dev/cciss/c0d0 does not exist" problem ==
     773
     774Since Linux kernel 2.6.32, hpsa is included, in addition to cciss (used by the system). At restore time, this driver is loaded first, and thus another set of devices is created insted of the /dev/cciss/c0d0 ones.
     775
     776That could lead to a "/dev/cciss/c0d0 does not exist" problem at mondorestore time.
     777
     778To work around that problem, a solution is to add hpsa to the list of excluded devices at restore time (booting with denymods="hpsa")
     779
     780Example :
     781{{{
     782boot: nuke denymods=hpsa
     783}}}
     784Another way could be, at backup time, to add hpsa to the DENY_MODS variable in /usr/sbin/mindi shell-script.
     785
     786Or to add in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf:
     787{{{
     788DENY_MODS="hpsa"
     789}}}
