BootCd.iso and Settings.txt

BootCd.iso and Settings.txt

BootCd.iso and Settings.txt

I am using EZ CD creator to create a bootable CD  from Zfd32sp2 in order to image my PC's.
i was able to burn the bootcd.iso and can boot my pc with.
But i was unable to add the settings.txt file or any other network card driver (e1000.o).
There is a TID from Novell (TID10059182)but there is a misunderstanding at step 3 of the procedure at the bottom of this document.
is there any clear procedure to achieve this ?

this is urgent and your help is appreciated

RE: BootCd.iso and Settings.txt

see TID 10070123 for adding drivers to boot CD's or floppies.
Alternately, there is this cool solution article:
and here:
(everyone wants to know about this.. me too!)

Keep in mind that this process is different than adding drivers etc to PXE. To do that you have to edit the linux.2 file and to do that, you want to the cool solutions article:


I have followed that article and it really does work. I used the technique to edit my hdparm settings under pxe boot so that DMA support would be enabled.

Last, there is a NEW linux.2 which is already compiled with a bunch of new drivers on it (Broadcom B57 incl) available for download from Marcus Breiden and the crew at Novell Forge.. (thanks guys!!!)


Just rename your existing linux.2 files (maybe linux.2.old?) and paste the new one in. It's on the server twice, under the /tftp dir.  Check it out..
