mkCDrec Make CD-ROM Recovery


Much of the components of this mkCDrec application were made by other people. I've just put together some GNU/Linux tools to have a disaster recovery solution, that fits my purposes (as described in the  introduction). A special thanks goes to the following people:

Jörg Schilling : cdrecord used to burn the backup CD-Rs
Eric Youngdale : the Linux isofs9660 filesystem and the mkisofs utility
H. Peter Anvin : syslinux/isolinux the initial boot routines to start from CD
Erik Andersen : busybox (all-in-one command) for the ram root (keep everything below 4 Mb).
Cory Dodt : author of repairlix which was used as basis for making a bootable CD-ROM
... and many, many people of the GNU/Linux community!

Special thanks is well on its place for the following mkCDrec contributors:

My name is  Gratien D'haese and I made this Make CD-ROM Recovery (mkCDrec) tool in the first place to suite my purposes to restore GNU/Linux based firewall systems in a fly. It should work for any linux based system as long as a El Torito bootable CD-ROMs can be burned and used to boot from.
