Is there any chance of getting the lastest version of g4u into UBCD 5?
I wanted to boot G4u (alpha version) from PXE server installed on windows XP, but I can't do that with the new version. I can't use memdisk to emulate the floppy version since they're splitted into 3 .fs images.

Yes, it is possible to make one image of it.
Victor has got a script (for linux) which makes it possible to make 1 floppy image of the 2/3 floppy images.

@ Victor: Can you post the script below?

@ Victor: The section in the isolinux config file for g4u is:
Code:
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/ubcd/images/g4u.igz ro raw

Without the ro and raw options it just runs fine (in a virtual machine).
Code:
KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/ubcd/images/g4u.igz

Heh, legacy stuff. I will correct that in the next beta release.

thank you victor for your script.
I finally got g4u to work. I'm now able to boot g4u 2.4alpha via PXE without any problem.

Code:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL G^4U 2.4 Alpha
Kernel kernels/memdisk floppy c=3 s=32 h=64
Append initrd=images/g4u2.img ro raw


"ro raw" parameters are needed, otherwise it will crash.

I have tested g4u V2.3 and g4u V2.4 alpha 2 in qemu, they both work with the following:
Quote:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL g4u V2.3
TEXT HELP
NetBSD-based distro that allows you to clone a hard disk by uploading a

well as partitions are supported.

KERNEL memdisk
APPEND initrd=/ubcd/images/g4u.igz

@branzmff: do you have updated memdisk to the last version?
