- Copying complete filessystems in Linux
- an easy and fast way while preserving all permissions and ownerships is
<p><tt>find /src -xdev | cpio -pvmd /dest</tt></p>
- Jocki's Tips to Programming, OS/2, Linux and CD-R burning.
- Memory tests, cdrecord with linux, hosts file, compiling EGCS,
Xfig problems, ATAPI Zip, OS/2 booting from Zip, Joliet support in OS/2,
, HPFS386, OS/2 hard disk cloning, Java classpaths.
- Kunning Elektro
- small perl script using <a href="http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/mod_perl/cpan-search?dist=Mail-MboxParser-0.10">Mail-MboxParser-0.10</a>
to split mbox files into MH directories and files.

I did the following
1. Remove BM from SCSI1, as there can only be ONE BM
2. Attempt to install on SCSI1, failure, only offers Disk 1 or 2
3. Restore BM on SCSI1, I had add every single bootable
volume/partition manually to BM as LVM doesn\'t keep this in memory!
4. Shutdown, unhook SCSI2, reboot
5. Remove BM and install on Disk2, now IDE1, at beginning of drive
where LVM left 7MB free from the beginning.
6. Add all bootable volumes/partitions again to BM (don\'t foget or you
can\'t boot any OS anymore) I have about 7 of those entries:
OpenDOS, 3 different OS/2 / eCS, 3 Linux
7. shutdown, -> BIOS: change order of boot sequence to IDE then SCSI
Layout in BIOS
8. boot eCS, BM shows all bootable partitions nicely as it should.
go into LVM, oha! we still have
Layout in LVM
9. Edit config.sys to change order of DANIS506 and SCSIXXX.add driver!
10. boot eCS: great! order is
Layout in LVM
11. I probably could hookup SCSI2 if I wanted, but right now that is
a.) I had to boot into my Linux systems by floppy, as the
LILO now has the wrong setup memorized for which type of disk has
which numer in the BIOS when booting. (changing the order of ide
and scsi), but after that change of lilo.conf and one run of lilo
it works like a charm.
b.) Creating a Volume from an existing partition with linux on it,
does not affect the partition itself and it can safely be used by
linux afterwards, the only thing that is destroyed is the
information in the head of the partition where, e.g. you could put
LILO (which then is started from BM), so one run of lilo is
necessary after adding this volume. BM only supports booting of
volumes not partitions, AFAIK.
- USB support for the generic USB Compact Flash card reader

SUBJECT: [Linux-usb-users] Genesys-based CF card reader working -- please incorporate patch
This patch also works for my SIIG USB CF US2256 (GenesysLogic GL641 USB/CF
which is a Zio-like CF reader that sells for $20 ($10 if you get the rebate)
at Fry\'s. I gave details on the device in in linux-usb-users digest #641.
I heartily recommend that Andrew\'s patch be added to the kernel:
