Adding PING to UBCD

Since i kinda missed a good Norton Ghost-like imaging tool on the UBCD, i looked around for one to include and found:

Ping (Partimage Is Not Ghost) -- Backup and Restore Disk Partitions (-:

After a lot of tinkering i got it working, and since i like it and found no reference to PING on here, i thought i'd share it.

1) First Download the ISO.

2) You need to get a few files out of it. I used Deamon Tools to mount the ISO so you can just copy it. If you don't have Deamon Tools and don't feel like installing, try something like Magic ISO.

3) Create the directory
and copy the files

to that dir.

4) in the custom.cfg file (in the custom folder), add this section:

Code: Select all

  KERNEL /custom/ping/kernel
  APPEND initrd=/custom/ping/INITRD.GZ vga=normal devfs=nomount pxe ramdisk_size=33000 load_ramdisk=1 init=/linuxrc prompt_ramdisk=0 root=/dev/ram0 rw noapic nolapic lba combined_mode=libata ide0=noprobe nomce
Altough i concider it a small miracle, it worked for me! (-:
Good luck.

Have you seen Clonezilla? I've just got it added to my ubcd on a flash drive and will sit down to write up the steps to add it.
