Am using SystemRescueCD as this is written, using Icecube's 'Tutorial for systemrescue 0.4.1' instructions in the UBCD thread 'HOWTO: Integrate System Rescue CD/Partimage into UBCD ' found at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=901&highlight=system+rescue
Info at Finnix is at http://www.finnix.org/
No X on Finnix liveCD, but some nice admin and rescue-type apps that overall take up less space than SystemRescueCD on an Ultimate Boot CD.
Have mostly followed similar instructions for downloading and setting up Finnix to boot in a remastered Ultimate Boot CD v4.1.1 as for DSL and SystemRescueCD.

What are the necessary edits for the isolinux.cfg -or- the finnix.cfg file and the setting up of c:\finnix directories :?:

Already have copied over and edited the directory structures as follows:

From Finnix-92.0.iso download
Quote:
./isolinux
    boot.cat ==> delete this file!
    dos.imz
    f1
    isolinux.bin ==> delete this file!
    isolinux.cfg ==> EDIT this file!
    linux
    linux64
    memdisk ==> delete this file!
    memtest
    menu.c32 ==> maybe delete this file ?
    minirt
    sbm.imz
    splash.png
    vesamenu.c32 ==> maybe delete this file ?
./FINNIX
    FINNIX
readme.txt ==> delete this file


Edits to c:\ubcd\custom\custom.cfg
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
   MENU LABEL ..
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL finnix
   MENU LABEL Finnix V92.0
   CONFIG /finnix/isolinux.cfg
(this last one could be changed to CONFIG /finnix/finnix.cfg)


Thanks for any help here in this request. :)

Will be testing this custom c:\ubcd-extract\finnix image in a newly remastered Ultimate Boot CD v4.1.1 ---- maybe this to be called UBCD 4.2.0alpha :?: :)

Edit "c:\ubcd\custom\custom.cfg" with a text editor:
Code:
MENU INCLUDE /menus/defaults.cfg
LABEL back
   MENU LABEL ..
   KERNEL menu.c32
   APPEND /menus/main.cfg
LABEL slax
   MENU LABEL Finnix V92.0
   CONFIG /finnix/isolinux/isolinux.cfg

The CONFIG command loads the isolionux config file for Finnix, but it requires a new version of isolinux.
Download syslinux from http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/.

Extract the syslinux archive to "c:\syslinux\".

To update isolinux for the CD version
- Copy "c:\syslinux\core\isolinux.bin" to "c:\ubcd-extract\isolinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "c:\ubcd-extract\isolinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "c:\ubcd-extract\isolinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "c:\ubcd-extract\isolinux\"

To update syslinux for the bootable USB key
- Copy "c:\syslinux\core\ldlinux.sys" to "c:\ubcd-extract\syslinux\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\mbr\mbr.bin" and "c:\syslinux\ldloader.bss" to "c:\ubcd-extract\tools\ubcd2usb\".
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\menu.c32" to "c:\ubcd-extract\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\modules\chain.c32" to "c:\ubcd-extract\syslinux\"
- Copy "c:\syslinux\memdisk\memdisk" to "c:\ubcd-extract\syslinux\"

You can also update the vesamenu.cfg of finnix.
- Copy "c:\syslinux\com32\menu\vesamenu.c32" to "c:\finnix\isolinux\vesamenu.c32"
